    Zen Turtle is an Ambassador

    Thought I would share since he is a beloved member of this Norcal Community

    Meet the Brand Ambassador Ė Marco Soldano - Titus Bicycles US

    Zen Turtle is an Ambassador-zt.jpg

    Iím Marco Soldano, from San Jose, CA.
    My day job is engineering manager in golden Silicon Valley of sunny California.
    Iíve been addicted to bikes since I was 4 and the bug seems to get stronger every year.
    I ride and race mostly mountain bikes, currently with Quadzilla Racing Team in Los Gatos, but I enjoy CX and road riding as well. My focus is in endurance events and epic rides.
    2011 has been an awesome year for me, rode over 5k miles and climbed more than half a million feet. I was so lucky to race at the Cascades Cream Puff 100 in Oakridge, OR, the Leadville 100 in CO, and take part to the Levi Leipheimer Gran Fondo in Santa Rosa with 6,000 fellow riders. Last but not least I joined with my team the Turning Wheels for Kids, where we volunteered with other teams to build 2400 bikes for underprivileged kids
    2012 promises to be even better, with many epic rides and endurance racing.
    First week of February I will be riding with three friends from San Francisco to Los Angeles, along the coast, for a total of 500 miles in 5 days. This is going to be a minimalistic cycle touring in terms of gear, along the beautiful coastal route of California. With one month to go we are frenetically picking the right gear: Iíll be riding my spanking new On-One Dirty Disco and I canít wait to hit the road.

    Yes Marco! You inspire me with your passion and great, friendly attitude. Your a great example of what the Norcal biking community is all about. I would say that Titus has chosen wisely. Great work out there. Glad to know you and be your teammate too.

    Can you claim diplomatic immunity the next time MidPen stops you?

    Titus and On-One are one thing now, but yes, will be sporting a Titus soon, considering the sweet bikes they are cranking out...

    Ahh, fun with the rangers.
    Sucks you got stopped by em.

    I'm starting to think that trying to figure out a radar/lidar detector on the bike might not be such a bad idea.

    Mapping gps unit/radar detector anyone?

    I wonder what band their radios are on, as a bit of a side note....
