As a life long athlete, I have always trained to compete. Now that my competitive
days are behind me, I continue to train for lifetime fitness and fun. Most of my training enjoyment
comes with trying to keep up with stronger younger riders which I do regularly. Cycling has
become a way to continually challenge myself with the next mile, the next hill, the next ride and
like all my previous athletic lives, a way to socialize with other focused competitive athletes.
2013 will also find me giving back to the community. I will again be a "Sheppard on the Ride for
Missing Children". This will be my eleventh year supporting this wonderful cause.
I will also be supporting the Rochester Area Triathletes, supervising the "transition area" for our
Most importantly, I look forward to being helpful in promoting fitness, healthy living and fellowship in 2013.

"Furman Ride" KOM
I have been a life time athlete. From being an "All Long Island" shortstop in high school baseball, to being a semi-pro racquetball player in it's heydays of the 1980's, (besides a teaching pro for 5+ years), to being one of the top squash players in Rochester in the 1990's, to now being the best 65+ rider in Rochester who occasionally wins the Furman KOM on the tough Wednesday night Tri rides out of Webster, against riders young enough to be my sons, if not grandsons!
I enjoy "the ride" of cycling and life. I would rather "smell the flowers" on a tough ride rather than the intense levels and commitment of racing. To each their own!
