Length of time at Moots, just about 1.5 years…in Steamboat Springs 3 years…hometown is Torrington, CT…came to Steamboat once he retired from the Navy. “I always wanted to live in the Rockies and Steamboat seemed to be a good fit.”… snowboarder and telemark skier, enjoys tele in the back country and snowboarding on deep powder days….Pete mowed lawns to buy his first bike, a Schwinn Mirada, “I rode that bike everywhere.”…current bike lineup includes: Moots Routt,

Fairdale Goodship, Fairdale Coaster, and a Surly Ice Cream Truck…you’ll find Pete enjoying the single track on Emerald mountain, road riding on 20 mile, and on the back roads behind Sleeping Giant…outside of Steamboat it’s anything in Fruita so far…dream cycling trip is to one day ride across America back to his hometown visiting friends along the way…if you are faster than Pete he most probably admires you unless, you’re jerk about it, then he’s glad you’re not riding with him…before pedaling it’s steel cut oatmeal, after, it’s beers and a cheeseburger, “Hey, I burned all those calories for a reason.”…when not riding you can find Pete at home with his wife and dogs…his dad got him into cycling, They would go on casual bike rides around town, “It was exciting to leave the neighborhood and not get in trouble.”…Pete recently purchased a Jeep, he says, “Stand by and see how far into the hole I end up.”
