In randonneuring, you get to know people by what bike they ride. I first met Mike after seeing his bike in the parking lot. “Who owns this bike?” I wondered. “Someone with an excellent randonneuring aesthetic!”
I found out the owner was Mike, who started riding with the D.C. Randonneurs this year. Mike’s positive attitude, sense of humor, and tenacity make him a perfect randonneur! And did I mention his bike? A custom steel steed that I’m thrilled to feature on Bikes to Like.
1. What kind of bike do you have?
I have a custom fitted Waterford ST22 frame. It was built up by Bike Doctor in Frederick, Maryland. I purchased the frame in September 2010 and then began accumulating the parts to build it up. It was delivered to me in February 2011.
