Celebrated turning 65 by riding South American Epic. Loved the experience. I was warned these trips become addictive and was home for only 2 weeks before signing up for TDA.

I am a fit-for-life kind of person. I have a large family and all my kids and grandkids enjoy physical activity and being outdoors. I enjoyed running marathons when I was younger and had better knees and now love to cycle, do yoga and walk the dog. My husband and I have done a few long unsupported solo cycling trips and are looking forward to doing a trip with others.

I am living and working in Singapore, but I also have a holiday home at Humber Valley Resort, near Corner Brook, NF. I have always wanted to explore this part of Canada by bicycle, so when the Bamboo Tour was cancelled I signed up for Kissing the Cod. I am still working and will have to carry on doing so on tour, but after being locked in Singapore for so many months, I am keen to get out and do as much as I can before the next crisis. I am married to Kim (originally from Malaysia - where I used to live) for the past 34 years and have two children, Albert & Victoria. I am still reasonably fit and will try to stay that way. Eventually I want to cycle the Bamboo Tour, Silk Route, South America Epic and West Africa en Velo - among others. Let's see...

"I have always been an independent traveller having organised my own long distance treks and hikes usually solo but sometimes guiding other groups, so it was of some concern for me to be involved in such a large group for such a long time but the quality of the leadership and team, the route chosen and friendships gain ensured my fears were not realised."

"This was the perfect tour for me...I used the word 'awesome' far too much; the people, both staff and fellow cyclists, made the difference between a good trip and a great trip. Everyone was supportive, Of each other, which allowed us challenge ourselves in different ways. When you are away for so long, the community that you have become part of, is central to your happiness!"

"There is nothing like seeing the world from the seat of a bicycle! Although I grew up in this part of the country, my eyes were reopened to the stunning vistas; the uniqueness and diversity of the French, Acadian, Celtic, and maritime cultures; and the openness and kindness of everyone we met. Weather challenges were mitigated by my amazing new Oh Canada friends who made even the worst storm seem something we could conquer together!"
