WHY I RIDE

I got serious about bicycling in 2020 as a way to connect with others and celebrate my newfound freedom from a lifelong smoking habit. Along the way, I found a group of coworkers and friends training for the 2021 PTC. Having never done major distance or true road-riding, it seemed like a good opportunity to start. And so my wife (who had just learned to ride as an adult) and I joined the group on their training sessions. We both managed to complete an un-timed metric century that year but were unable to participate in race day due to a previous commitment.

Now it is time to finish the job.

This year, I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer along with the Edward Jones team. Both me and my wife Kim ride in memory of my mother-in-law (her mom). Cancer robbed my wife of this vital relationship in 2013. It is truly devastating to see how this terrible disease affects not only the patient but everyone around them, even years later.

Also, check out Kim Kanias PTC Page She kind of made small deal of it on her page, but she just learned to ride a bike last year and by the end of her first season, she managed to complete a metric century of road riding with Nic, Cat, Erik, any myself from Edward jones.
