California writer and cyclist Gary J Boulanger discovered the dirt trails and busted concrete of Green Bay, Wisconsin on his trusty Schwinn Sting-Ray as a child, setting up a lifetime love affair with two wheels. His adventures have included saddle time with Tom Ritchey in Rwanda, Africa; Sean Kelly in Chicago; Greg LeMond in northern California; Davis Phinney in Colorado; Gary Fisher, Joe Breeze, Otis Guy and Charlie Kelly on Mt. Tamalpais; Keith Bontrager in Santa Cruz; Grant Petersen on Mt. Diablo, and his loving wife on his tandem as often as she likes.
Boulanger is a regular contributor to PAVED, Dirt Rag, and Bicycle Times magazines, the former edited by former professional road, mountain and cyclocross racer Joe Parkin, the latter published by Mountain Bike Hall of Famer Maurice Tierney. He is also ghostwriting, co-authoring or representing a small handful of bike industry notables with books to be published in the coming months. He loves coffee almost as much as he loves cycling, and is nearing his collegiate soccer playing weight while working on his savage farmer tan on the roads and trails near his home in Mountain View, California.
