Passion # 1 is Bike Racing

I have followed bike racing since watching track racing at the Encino Velodrome in the 1970's. We were regulars at the Saturday Night at the races. Then the Tour de France were being broadcast in the 1990's. We went to a race in downtown Ventura put on by the Gold Coast Racing Team. Then I have followed the Garrett Lemire Race in Ojai. I have made several trips to the Home Depot velodrome in Carson with the bike club. I have been fortunate to be able to follow the Tour of California on several stages for the four years that it has been in existence.

Bike Camps

I have been fortunate to have attended several professional bicycling team camps. I took a chance on a Friday afternoon in January 2006 and drove to Ojai. I found the Discovery Team equipment truck at the Ojai Valley Inn!! Page and Photos Here.
