Michael believes that cycling is more than a sport; it’s a lifestyle. He lives in San Diego, California, an optimal city for year-round riding. He loves all types of cycling, road, dirt, gravel, and commuting, with a primary focus on triathlon the last five years. After completing several 70.3 events, Michael is training up for his first full Ironman in Arizona. As the Executive Director of the Gaslamp Quarter Association, the Historic District in downtown San Diego, he is also currently working on a large-scale redevelopment project that will transform 12 blocks of 5th Avenue into a pedestrian and cycle-friendly promenade.
