training • Mt Diablo
Independent racing team
I am my own team. That gives me freedom to train and race as I choose, but also means that I rely on partnerships to help defray the costs of training and racing. If you would like to help me get to the podium, and get some positive publicity in return, consider partnership opportunities.

Partners in the community
I believe strongly in clean energy and conservation. On the bike, that means no drugs or supplements. In the community, that means solar power and recycling and related environmental causes. It means walking and biking whenever possible -- we live 1.7 miles from downtown, so I can walk and bike to the markets and the library. We have a solar roof installation that provides most of our electrical power, with the remainder coming from 100% renewable resources.

I believe strongly in positive business ethics. In the community, that means supporting businesses and nonprofits that demonstrate transparency, fairness, integrity, honesty, and dependability.

I seek partners who share those values, and work together to provide positive visibility for their brands in the community. HC jerseys are seen on the road, worn by a cyclist who promotes bicycle safety by example; I obey traffic laws and signals, including stop signs. They are seen on race podiums. They are seen by cyclists and spectators around me on the road and at races, and in coffee shops where we stop to chat mid-ride.

Our partners
I am proud to promote these small businesses and nonprofit organizations, and to wear their colors.
