Long ago, in the year 2000, depressed and jobless, I pedaled my Trek 930 mountain bike from Edgewater to the west loop where, despite a trip over the handlebars, I found salvation and employment as a bicycle messenger. Two years later, my career in full bloom, I rode a mini bike into a wall at a loft party and found comraderie and a chip on my shoulder as a member of the Chicago Cuttin’ Crew (social club). In the spring of ’08, at a “super” criterium in rural Illinois, eager yet out of shape, I fell head over heels again…for racing bikes. I’m honored that the Chicago Cuttin’ Crew (race team) has allowed me to wear their colors while learning the ropes in the world of competitive (sanctioned) cycling.
