Scott Birdsey

Hey – welcome!

I’m Scott Birdsey,

a web designer & amateur bike racer in Albany, NY.

I’m a web designer

I’ve been working on the web for the past decade.
Web design goes something like this:

  1. Define what precisely a website exists for.
  2. Design a content structure and visual theme around use.
  3. Develop the code-base and, if necessary, authoring tools, with an eye for accessibility and performance.

Wow – that sounds so easy!

I’m currently working on getting some, uh, work onto the site to share –
in the meantime, feel free to contact me.

But also, I’m an amateur cyclist

My journey into racing bikes began in 2015 as a 15-years-long smoker. I was craving new adventure and cleaner lungs. I race cyclocross with NYCROSS and road with Capital Bicycle Racing Club, of which I am also a board member. I am the race director for Troy, NY’s cyclocross weekend, the Uncle Sam Grand Prix, and a brand ambassador for KTM Bike Industries.

I like to think about bike racing almost as much as I like to do it. So, you can expect lots of writing here on the topic.
