Review Editor


Mark is a longtime urban bicycling enthusiast. He's been riding bikes whenever possible for about ten years, and in 2011 he traded his old Honda Accord straight up for a new bike, shunning motorized transportation ever since. Some of his favorite biking events are the Powderhorn 24 in Minneapolis MN, and the New York City Century. By day, Mark works as an administrator in the higher education field, including currently at Teachers College of Columbia University in New York City.
