Rob is a Masters LGBRC member who joined in 2007.
When asked how he got involved in cycling, he replies, "I initially became involved out of necessity at a young age, I had no car and wanted to go places! But soon I realized what a great way of transportation it could be, and how it directly could help preserve the environment."
"After too many years on the east coast with sporadic riding opportunities, finally here in California I "rediscovered" the bike and have been riding whenever possible."
His greatest cycling achievement? "I completed 5 double centuries in 2007, plus the very difficult "Climb to Kaiser". I finished tied for 5th in the 2007 Eastern Sierra Double. I try to bike commute to work every non-rain day between Cupertino to Palo Alto."
He continues, "I'm a software guy, and have recently written a program for the macintosh called "Ascent", for analyzing workouts and plotting activity GPS data against download maps. My "real" job, however, is managing the software team for Euphonix, a small company here in the valley that builds digital audio mixing consoles.
My goal is to just stay fit, have some endurance, and try to keep up with the younger guys and girls during group rides."
