Off the bike activities: Playing with our new baby; Conrad! My wife and I like hiking fishing and stuff out doors, cross country skiing and trail building are things I look forward to in the off season.
I live in a small college town in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia with my wife Erin our new son Conrad. There is an abundance of great local riding, the thing I like most about the scene in the Burg is that it has some grit. Our area is still mostly off radar but with great trails and euro style country roads I find it an ideal place to be. Cool but not all race all the time.
I guess it is the Indian American part of my character but I like cook, stop smell the roses, I am chill off the bike and somewhat reflective and artistic though I have been practiced much outside of photography. However on the bike I transform into a different animal. I am bursting with energy look for the extra credit line on downhills and generally get the biggest kick out of challenge my limits and exploring new heights or Epic rides.
