Did You Know?: Cody likes to collect shoes. In fact, whenever he goes to a race he tracks down the local sneaker shops to pick up a pair.
First Involvement in Cycling: I had a good friend who started to commute to work with my Dad on bike and I thought that was the coolest thing ever. He took me out on a mountain bike ride one day and it was all I needed to get into it. The next thing I know I'm helping another good family friend at his bike shop and that was it.
Charity Work/Community Involvement: Cody works with his local high school's mountain bike team
