Eric Carson has been living an active lifestyle since the 90s that most of us would be happy to emulate.
He started cycling just to get to campus and back. A friend of his asked him to do a 25-mile bike ride. He thought it was a long way back then.
The COVID-19 pandemic brought him back to cycling, and it became a good addiction and a lifestyle.Carson says his greatest joy out of cycling is camaraderie. He enjoys having a great time outdoors with his tribe.

Eric was borned and raised in Stamford Ct. He has one brother. Played all three major sports in high school (football, baseball, & basketball)
He received my BS in Electrical Engineering from Northeastern University. While there, he had my first introduction to casual biking. He commuted back and forth to campus and work. He did one 25 mile ride at a request of a friend. and thought that was crazy.
He started taking it a little more seriously in the early 90s and did a few multiple sclerosis rides from Richmond to Williamsburg (160 miles over 2 days). That stretch in the 90s culminated in doing one of the Aids Bike Rides in 1997…..a 4 day 365 mile ride from Raleigh NC to Washington DC. He found it very fulfilling.
The COVID-19 pandemic brought him back to cycling, and it became a good addiction and a lifestyle.
