Through the years, riding has become a very important part of John’s lifestyle. Like many others, John started riding a bike at around 3 years old and had grown up to think that “bike racing” was something particular to European culture. Instead, his competitive outlet was directed towards typical American sports and eventually became a runner. Throughout most of John’s life, riding a bike took on a more practical aspect, commuting, getting from point A to point B, purchasing groceries, or to stay fit while recovering from running injuries – which as he grew older, continued to increase. Eventually John decided to set running aside and just ride. Riding a bike for exercise led him to racing and racing eventually led to PA Masters.
When not riding, and not working for a living, John like to spend time with his wife Patty. They have two grown up daughters, Jenny and Julia, and one very spoiled dog, Meka.
