I’m riding with Will Butler!

Sam pedals by dressed in a flannel. He is accompanied by a dog in his bike's basket.

When was your first Cycle for Sight? My first Cycle for Sight is on April 22nd, 2017 and I am currently at stoke level 11 (on a 10 point scale).

Why do you love riding in Cycle for Sight? I want to support more people having access to two things that I love: cycling and the great outdoors.  I have little tandem experience and thought this would be a great reason to take on a new challenge with fun people to share it with.  I also enjoy music, wine, and food, and I am told that I will find all three at the end of the ride.

What’s your best cycling memory? It was a great day when a childhood friend showed me how to stick baseball cards in my bike spokes, which makes a bike sound like a cartoon motorcycle when the wheels turn.  We terrorized the neighborhood on our “Harleys” for several days following the discovery.

What’s your favorite quote? “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.” – Hunter S. Thompson
