    My name is Michael Dowd. I am known either as "Bike Mike" or "Big Mike" here in Belleville, New Jersey, U.S.A. I am the kind of person that likes to have fun, that listens, and enjoys life. I do not drink, not smoke, nor do not do drugs. I can not drive due to bad vision. Legally blind in the state of New Jersey. That is why I pedal on my 21 and a 30 speed bicycle.

  • I volunteered for a local cable access channel WBHS-34 from 1989 to 2003.
  • Am a blood donor.
  • Became a Eagle Scout on June 22, 2008
  • I started in Boy Scout Troop 301 of Belleville around 1981 or 1982.
  • I am in a Special Troop and been in the troop since around 1983 or 1984. Something like that. This awesome troop has turned 35 in April of 2008. This troop is not a normal troop where the age limit is 18. So that you can understand this part. The troop I am in is for those that are disabled and handicap . . . wanting to have fun, a challenge and an adventure. There are not many troops out there like that. Everyone in this awesome troop does not use the word handicap. Rarely use the word. But typed it in here for you to understand.
  • I ride in two Multiple Sclerosis bike tours a year here in New Jersey to help raise money for Multiple Sclerosis since 1990.
  • My dreams one day is to become a D.J., work on camera at a big network and ride my bicycle from my town to either my most favorite camp in New Jersey, Washington D.C. or Disney World in Florida.
