> 2018 Bio(s):  About Al Reszel.
Al Reszel is 59 years old, is an avid bicyclist and outdoorsman, living with his wife Terry in Richmond, MN. Both Al and Terry have been residents of Minnesota for 24 years.  Al’s love of two-wheels started 27 years ago.  Short afternoon rides quickly became 50 to 100 mile each weekend.  Of late, Al has participated in recent breast cancer awareness rides in and around the mid-state region.  After 29 years as a business executive and trainer for companies the likes of Well Fargo and Great Western Bank, Al made a bold decision to leave Corporate America, go back to school and get his Master Degree in Special Education. After earning his degree from Bemidji State University, Al began working as a Special Education teacher at Yellow Medicine East High School.  Al has been teaching for seven years now, loves working with ‘his kids’ and looks forward to many more years of working with his students.  When Al isn’t teaching or riding his bicycle, he spends time with his wife, family and four precious grandchildren.
