Last day of the Ski season begins the first day of the cycling season. Sunday April 11, 2010 Bogus Basin Ski area had one of the best end of ski season closing days. The conditions were fantastic for the snow was soft as butter. After a day on the slopes I stopped by my friend Curt's house to spot him a front derailleur he needed for his NRS Giant MTB getting set up for his wife Tiffany. No less than 30 seconds after telling him I needed an 80 mm fork to complete my build then my wife calls to let me know Cary emailed to say he had 2 forks to GIVE me !!! Wow- what a great community of cyclists we have here in Boise. I love to give away to those who need something I have - then mysteriously God provided all my needs as well.
As a life time learner, I re-educate myself on the ever evolving technology landscape. For about half my working life I sold and supported recreational sporting goods for alpine skiing, camping and bicycles. Merging the Bicycle and Ski rental shops at Sun Valley Resort in Idaho was a special time during the 50th anniversary of the resort. Much of my volunteer work has been spent as an advocate for access to public land for bicycling. I currently volunteer at the Boise Bicycle Project. I helped apply for the grant and managed the development of a Bicycle School for children. This school is now part of the Boise Parks and Recreation ongoing summer program.
