As I look back on the year, I realize that this is what I love about CyclingSavvy too. Sharing knowledge, vanquishing crippling beliefs, and empowering people with new possibilities are some of the most rewarding things one can do.
About Waco Moore
I’ve been riding bikes since I could reach the pedals. These days, I’m the guy on the three-speed with the little girl on back. You might see me taking my 5-year-old to school, the park, the pool, the grocery store, or just out having fun. I ride to my office downtown when I can, which lately has been almost every day. (Yes, we do have a showers at work!) I grew up in Dallas but have also spent many years living and working in NYC and other points around the globe. I currently live in the Preston Hollow neighborhood with my wonderful wife and daughter.

Last Christmas, Santa brought me a video camera. For 6 months I’ve been recording my commute, waiting for something (anything!) interesting to happen.
