Hi everyone!
     I just volunteered to help with the USBRS.  I live in Princeton.  In the 1980's I sold a set of strip maps called Bicycling Through New Jersey.  I was in charge of routes for GEAR UP 1985 from The College of NJ.  I was in charge of routes for the Princeton Event for the 1st 10 years, 1981-1991.  I have been a SAG at the Farmlands Flat Century and The Hillier Than Thou Century.
     I would like to work with people on any issues regarding routing on or near the East Coast.  Oh yes, I have tour books galore for NJ and bordering states.  I know that I can be an asset to the organization.  I hope to hear from some of you soon.
     Happy tail winds.

Hi, Successor...:
I'm in western Mass (the "frontier" from my friends in Boston), a short throw from the Quabbin (Boston's water supply). Some fine riding roads here, especially if you like hills. Today I'm headed out for my first spring ride in the Quabbin; the temperature is supposed to reach a balmy 50 F. Spring is here!

In Northern NJ myself, I have ridden the Farmland Flats for a couple of years, nice early season flat ride by my parents.  Looking into doing some more touring this year, haven't been touring in a bit, just the usual bike commute and informal rides with friends.
