I was born in 1943 and have been riding bicycles since I was 6 years old in Baton Rough LA. One of my worst crashes occurred as I was avoiding being hit by a left turning driver. Concussion, broken ribs, broken shoulder. Since 1996 I have been involved in educating people about safe cycling and have served as education director for my local club (Bike Austin) my state organization (Bike Texas) and the League of American Bicyclists. I still train and certify League Cycling Instructors. My latest endeavor to make the roads safer for cyclists of all forms is a Podcast called “It Depends: Riding Safely” that will hit the internet in March 2020. I have ridden on six continents, raced both road and mountain bikes and done one marathon. I now run a non profit (waaoinc.org) that is providing trike rides for people with disabilities.
