I am lucky to have a friend like Paul and in many ways he is more of a brother to me than anything else. I met Paul Bardis on a mountain bike ride in Plattsburgh New York. I was riding with my girlfriends counselor who invited him to come along as well. We started doing all kinds of mountain bike adventures and eventually lead to Adirondack High Peak bagging .
When Paul left to come to Montana for school he gave me his car and it is with that car that I started to travel around New England becoming a mountain bike racer.
Now that I am out here in Montana he visits with his family once a year and it is a time I enjoy the most.
