Bill grew up on the coast of Maine and purchased his first road bike in 1971 which he rode extensively for the next ten years through college and commuting 40 miles every day to his summer job. In 1991 Bill moved from Manhattan to Naples to continue his career in finance and raise his family with his wife, Allison. He resumed road cycling in 2000 and joined Naples Velo in 2004 when he discovered the challenge and camaraderie of group riding and training. Bill is a committed believer in the individual health and societal benefits of cycling. He hopes that more areas throughout the US increasingly commit to cycling’s success as a core component of their transportation systems.
