As the president of Trek Bicycle, I’d like to share my stories about interesting people, places, and the bicycle with hope of inspiring you to find your great ride.

Sweet paint on that ride! Project One option?

Best commute story? I ride to work in one my older riding kits, and change upon arrival, and one morning I got a pinch flat over a pair of train tracks and was forced to change the tire. I did the repair in record time and was so proud of my pit crew-esque abilities that I hopped on and took off in a flash with an air of confidence. Still reveling in my sheer awesomeness, I failed to notice that while making the repaid I caused fairly sizable tear in the rear seam of my shorts above the chamois. I rode the entire way to work exposing my hindest hindquarters to passing motorists, one of which happened to be a coworker (something I have always wanted to do anyway, so the accidental courage was nice).


Love the robe/running shoe combo!


Best story is from this morning, 3/17/10. Riding to work on my new Trek Belleville through downtown San Luis Obispo. It being Saint Patty's day, the bars all opened extra early and there were plenty of loud people out already. The funniest one was one poor guy who was staggering along and finally found a light pole to wrap his arms around just to keep himself upright!

Here's a link to a picture of my ride this a.m. Two days in a row! I've been walking around work with a big goofy grin on my face.


My best commute since January could be riding in any of our snowstorms. The Schwalbe Marathon Winter tires dug deep and kept my traction. I love riding in the fresh snow--it's always very peaceful.


Here's my picture! So early the sun isn't even up yet!

P.S. - I'm on the UW cycling team. Thanks for your support!


Ben, great job navigating the early revelers. That deserves one of our new Bontrager ECO panniers and Ion lights. Runner up awarded to Adam. Watch for an email with details and we'll send out the new gear.

Well I know you already sent out the prize - but just so you know - here in Wash DC - we have a hard core group on the MARC train into Union Station - if the train runs - we're on the bike and on the road - 250+ days - no weekends or government holidays of course. And this year lot of those days are 20'F with 15mph wind chill BEFORE you start riding! Thank heaven for modern fleece clothing! Folding bikes rock BTW.
