My name is Parker, and I have lived in/around Atlanta, GA for my entire life. Growing up, I was always pretty overweight and struggled mightily with various body image, eating, and exercise issues. About 7 years ago, I decided to make a real change and dropped over 80 lbs in 7 months. I quickly learned that I needed to make exercise fun if I was going to keep the weight off permanently. That is where cycling came into the picture. I fell in love with the sport and discovered that I was actually kind of good at it! After buying my first "real" road bike, I never looked back. I own 5 bikes now, and I am a firm believer in the classic notion that the "correct" number of bikes to own is N+1.
