about me riding my bikes
Some Words About Me
At the age of 40, my wife bought me a special birthday present: a brand new diamondback bicycle. Not that I didn’t have any experience in riding a bicycle, it’s even hard to remember when I started. But I have a clear image of a ‘small me’ riding an iron Raleigh bicycle in my village. We used to attach an empty cigarette box with a clip to the front wheel so that it would make a noise while riding. Those bikes were very different from the bikes our children ride: no suspension, no gear, no designer seat, and no disk brakes. It didn’t matter that they were very heavy simple bikes.

They made me happy!

Many things have changed since then. In November 2009, I took part in a gorgeous bike riding trip along the beautiful mountain trails of Chiang Mai, Thailand. We were a group of 7 friends. I made up my mind to share my experiences with others so that more of us can enjoy the best sports activity I can imagine:


About Me & Bicycles and Bicycling Websites

My official education is an electrical engineer, with years of experience in software development. In the last 10 years, I have been developing software for GPS navigation. Just like many technical people, I suffer from a common weakness: My marketing skills are quite limited. I found myself with good products but without customers. Over the years, I had some ideas on how to put my creation on the market. The last one was to build a website that would help me in the mission.

I have a neighbor and a dear friend, Elad Shippony. For several years, Elad told me inspiring stories about SBI (Site Build It), about working from home, the freedom it offers and as a way to make my dreams come true.

Until the end of 2009, I had neither the time, energy, nor courage to make my dream come true: creating my website, my own business, and beginning my journey towards the goal of working from home. Elad suggested I use SBI to build my website to sell my software. This is how I was exposed to the wonderful world of SBI.

As you can see, this site is not about GPS software. It is about me and my main hobby, bicycle riding. My GPS software site is still waiting for me. But I have found so much joy in building this website, that I am willing to put my other dream aside, at least for now.

Next, I moved to WordPress, the #1 leading CMS (Content Management System) in the world. It is based on the PHP scripting language, as well as on the open-source phpMySQL server. As I became more experienced in creating websites, I feel that I am ready to move on to a more advanced (and challenging) platform, and I am so happy with this move! Take a look at some of my other websites:
