My passion for long-distance bicycling began back in 1980 when I completed my first century. In 1981 I completed my first double-century. Ten years later, after many more "doubles", a 700-mile qualifier race for Race Across America, organizing the 220-mile, one-day Race Across Wisconsin, and doing a solo tour across America, I walked away from the sport. This blog is about my return to cycling twenty years later, and my plan to break a Wisconsin state record. Thank God for second chances.
