When the old legs are weary, I take the bike out for a spin.

If the weather is fine, the Helios 900 is the favorite animal. If the wheather is foul, the Cube Attain must take its turn (the Trek 1400 has been permanently retired).

I am a member of the Aarhus 1900 atletic club and the HHHH sub-branch.

I am a member of the CK Aarhus cycling club.

I am a former member of the OGF atletic club and the Le Pedaleur de Charme cycling club.

 My wife teaches high school at Egå Gymnasium.

 My daugther (Helena) play soccer in IF Lyseng.

 I am one of the founding members of JSS.

 If you like heavy metal, try out the KNAC netradio ;-)
