Barry was first attracted to cycling
when his high school calculus teacher,
Mr. Devlin, started a bicycle club in
his native Long Island. He has ridden
nearly continually ever since but has
also found time to play semi-professional
soccer, recreational softball, work on
a formula Ford car pit crew and coach
Westinghouse's women's softball team.
Aside from riding his black and red BMC SLC01, he is
principal timpanist in the Saratoga Symphony and is
the San Jose Chairperson of the Carnegie Mellon Admission
Council. Barry is a consultant to the electric power
industry specializing in corrosion and materials engineering.
Barry has been president of the Los Gatos
Bicycle Racing Club for over a decade.
He leads the monthly meetings and also
serves as clothing manager and sponsorship
chairperson. When asked what he considers
his greatest cycling achievement, he notes, "being
president of the LGBRC and working with
such a diverse and wonderful membership.
The LGBRC is the greatest organization
I have ever had belonged to. The members
are extremely bright, friendly enthusiastic
and have become my very good friends.
In fact, I often attend our members’ weddings
and sometimes even perform the ceremony!"
Now retired from racing, Barry used to race track,
time trials and road races as a Category 4 rider.
