New build


This is my new bike build for 2015. Maybe my last - not! I bought the frame on ebay. It's a Scott CR1 SL. Probably a 2008. They change frame styles in 2010. It's like new, only a slight cable rub on the head tube. I weighed the frame at 2lb, 10oz. Not bad! New 2015 full Ultegra 6800 group set (11speed, compact), carbon bars, and seat post, Sram bar tape, (I went with white for a change), KMC chain (hot waxed). Ultegra 6800 wheelset to complete the build with Vittoria open pro cross cx tires. I have another set of wheels for training rides and use the good ones for tours.

First Two


After the first two races of my 8 race season plan I am happy to report I have finished first- ahead of everyone who finished behind me in each race so far! I've actually finished 21st of 60 and 18th of 47 in the first and second races respectively. Good results for the confidence but what I've learned has been more valuable the the results themselves.


New Ohio Bicycle Tour Company


Buckeye Country Roads Bicycle Tours came into existence late in 2012 as my friend/business partner Rod Hutton and I decided to channel our retirement energies more fully into our passion for riding bicycles.

Our vision is to provide avid cyclists with fully van supported, fully "pampered" options for multi-day bicycle tours in Ohio. Historically, all the multi-day tours held in Ohio have been camping-oriented, and those seeking nicer accommodations would generally have to arrange these on their own.
