Hi everyone, I live in Devon, England and have been a cyclist for 25 years having started when I was 30. I'll turn 56 during the Tour in May 2021 and am excited about being in a brand new place on a great two wheeled adventure when I do. I'm a long time ethical vegan, I was vegetarian from the age of 11 in 1976 until the age of 45 in 2010 and have been happily vegan for 15 years now, I'm really looking forward to the rice, bean and vegetable dishes of Korea and Japan. Asian food is my favourite.

I am a veterinarian who loves adventure. I have always wanted to go on an extended bike ride and this tour seemed to fit the bill. I have ridden RAGBRAI and completed numerous long distance cycling events. I love to hike- trekking to the summit of Kilimanjaro and in Nepal. I love eco travel and have used my profession to enable me to work around the world. I have three adult children who encourage me to explore,travel and in the words of Captain Kirk of the USS Enterprise- "To boldly go where "I " have never been before". First TDA tour was the Pub Ride and it was fabulous. Now I am hooked on cycle touring!

I'm from Calgary, Alberta and love riding my bike! I've been a *bit* obsessed with TDA since 2011 when an acquaintance completed tour d'Afrique - one day I will to. I loved the Hippie Trail trip that I completed with TDA in 2017! I look forward to meeting everyone and getting on the road! May have to resurrect my blog....

I’ve loved Japan ever since I did Ironman Japan in 1994 and 1995 and had home-stays. So excited about going back. This will be my third TDA trip. I retired from a banking career in New York in 2016.

"Go! Go! Go! This was the most amazing traveling experience I've had to date! The tour structure allowed me to feel safe as part of a big group whilst it also gave me freedom to decide how to go about my ride each day. Knowing that I could stop as many times as I wanted to engage with locals or go to an art gallery in the middle of the way without affecting other riders was absolutely liberating!”

“TDA allows you to really experience the cultures of other countries. I love especially going places where tourists don’t go along with the usual tourist sites. You meet people that become friends for life. Awesome!”

"The 2,900-kilometre ride across South Korea and Japan will take you through modern cities and over lonely mountain roads, past temples and World Heritage Sites."
