Longest Ride: 47 miles

Adam Fast

I am a family man with two sons, ages eight and three. I have rode bikes in some capacity my whole life. BMX bikes with friends as a kid, commuting on an old “10-speed” and casual riding. Six years ago a friend and neighbor introduced me to mountain biking in our local trail system. I was instantly hooked. I soon purchased a road bike to go on training rides with him. I have focused on biking since then as my sport.

Last summer a lifelong friend attempted to casually ride a century and failed short of his goal at 92 miles. I had also contemplated riding this distance as it is a milestone achievement to reach as an amateur cyclist. It is the distance that has a permanent place on the list of life experiences.

My motivation is to ride this distance with my friend and achieve this right of passage in the cycling community together.

From Mountain to Road - A New Challenge

I have ridden bikes in some capacity my whole life. From BMX to mountain bikes to road bikes. I started riding on the road in high school with a converted Specialized Hard Rock that I put slicks on. There were no power meters around, no heart rate monitors, no GPS, just going out and riding as hard or as easy as you felt for the day.
