Cycling disciplines:

Road, gravel, hand cycling

My passion for cycling was rekindled after leaving the U.S. Submarine Force and moving to York, Pennsylvania. I restarted training slowly, balancing it with my career and raising two daughters with my wife. JoAnn did most of the heavy lifting as I spent ten years working rotating shift work. 

It took me eleven years to dip my toe into racing, but soon afterward, I jumped into the deep end and loved it. Along the way I supported various charity rides, including The Multiple Sclerosis Society, since I have a personal connection to the disease. Since retiring I now have the opportunity to partner more fully with athletes, helping them meet and exceed their goals.

Off the bike and being retired, I have more time to spend with JoAnn, traveling to Northern Virginia to see our daughters' families and doting on our four grandchildren.

Here are a few of my favorite achievements:

  • USA Cycling Level 3 and TrainingPeaks Power-Certified coach

  • WKO5 software user

  • Local road race director

  • 100+ races, including road, crits, and TTs

  • A founding member of the Dover, PA BaseCamp (pre Zwift) 

Athlete Testimonials

I am glad I have Jim as my coach. He understands where I am at in my life and cycling goals and is extremely supportive. I have had a few medical issues over the last year that he has worked with me on and because of his care and understand I have exceeded my goals.   - Dennis W.

Base Camp is not my first experience with a coach. Jim gives the feeling that he “gets it” when it comes to understanding my needs, desires and limitations as an athlete. After years of witnessing my fitness decline, despite incredibly hard and frustrating work simply trying to keep up with a local club and its coaching program, over the past year that trend has made an about face. My fitness is probably already starting to approach where it was years ago when I achieved my loftiest goals and it appears to be continuing to rise. I am excited about my continued progression and about just being able to get out and enjoy riding more than ever.   - Mike F.
