Brant is co-chair of the AMC Berkshire Chapter Bicycling Committee. Brant has been riding bikes for both pleasure and exercise for as long as he can remember. Starting in the early 2000s, bicycling became Brant's primary outdoor activity (except during winter), and he now rides at least 2500 miles each year. His bike is named Ulysses, inspired by the final line of the poem by Tennyson.
