A very nice write-up in the Portsmouth Daily Times on our Connex member, Nathan Mullins, bike trip from Cleveland to Cincinnati. Nathan is an avid and very strong cyclists and we are very lucky to have him as part of the Connex family! Nathan tackled the 326 mile Ohio Erie bike route solo this spring and was the first for the year to complete the trek. Congratulations to Nathan for his wonderful accomplishment. Nathan also had some very good advice for those that would like to get into cycling.
