The Renaissance Man’s Bio

Hello world!  My name is Tim Stout……aka The Renaissance Man.

I am a very fortunate to be married to a beautiful and smart woman for the past 20+ years that has supported many of my undertakings.  In July 2010, due to my growing weight, I jumped head first into road cycling.  As always, my wife offered her support and now I am a cycling junkie.

We have 3 awesome kids that have and will continue to achieve great things.  We live in Georgetown in an awe inspiring area for cycling and attend Ss. Francis and John Catholic Parish.  I am a University of Louisville graduate (Thanks to my friends Luigi and Farhood!) with a degree in Industrial Engineering (but I am an avid University of Kentucky sports fan).  Currently, I am the COO for a limestone mining company in Lexington, KY.

My first bike was a Giant Seek 0 Hybrid.  A heavy 28 pound bike that helped me ride 1,000 miles in my first six months.  But I soon realized it was going to take more ”bike” to help me achieve my goals.  So I acquired a Litespeed Archon C3 full carbon bike with Ultegra components.  Going from a 28 pound bike to an 18 pound bike makes a huge difference!

Two things pointed me to cycling – my weight and my oldest son.  Two things keep me going – my good friend Masher and the satisfaction I get from pedaling mile after mile and knowing that I can do it.  From August 2010 through July 2011, my cycling accomplishments have been great:

  • A lasting friendship with my good friend Kevin “The Masher” Pearl.
  • Losing 25 plus pounds of extra weight – headed towards losing another 40.
  • Riding over 2,500 miles including two centuries and a ride across Kentucky.

My goals are still numerous and I have just begun this cycling adventure.  But over the past year, I have realized how important bicycling safety needs to improve.  So we have started RAM Cycling.  One major focus will be to improve cycling awareness and hopefully to pass a “3 feet 2 pass” law in Kentucky.

If you are new or old to cycling, just remember to keep moving forward on your bike!

    • Joe,You generally wouldn’t re-glass a board just to change the graphics. It would add a lot of weight.For a board that is already finished, you would either posca pen or spray paint a new design over the existing one. Then seal it with a clear acrylic.For a new board, we either airbrush or laminate a design onto the foam and then it is either sand or glossed over with resin and cloth over the design. Protects the artwork and makes the colors pop.
