When he realized he could break out of Lancaster County and live that adventure if he got good enough on the bike, riding became an addiction. He patterned his training regimen after what he read of the pros in cycling magazines. But his day was ultra-scheduled; after school he had a job at a grocery store, and he also repaired washing machines at his dad's shop. Chores kept him busy until long past dark. Only then did he get on the bike, and he'd streak along the deserted country roads until early morning.
