There are so many interesting places to travel to, and I can't think of any better way to travel through anywhere, than by bike. I enjoy the challenge it brings and I look forward to going to the more out of the way locations and interacting with the locals. I enjoy seeing how different life is in new places and from other perspectives. I enjoy travel, and I love cycling so am looking forward to combining them both for this trip.

Randy is happily married to his best friend and wife Sandy of 33 years. He has three adult children, two of them married and two young grandsons. Randy resides in Kelowna, British Columbia and enjoys his real estate development career as President of Mission Group Homes. When he is not working, he loves travel, cycling, snow skiing and oil painting. Born in Vancouver, he has been a lifelong west coast Canadian, with the exception being his six college years in Los Angeles, earning a degree in architecture from the University of Southern California. His favourite team sports to watch are hockey and football. Randy is an avid Canadian Olympic hockey team fan, a USC Trojan college football fan, as well as a Seattle Seahawk NFL fan. He and Sandy have experienced long distance cycling once before in 2015, when they rode 1,800 km, unsupported from Canterbury, England to Rome, Italy. Randy is grateful to be married to an adventurous wife as the 2015 cycle to Rome and the Paris to Istanbul trip are her ideas.

I love to read and ride bicycles… but not at the same time! I also write and wakeboard. My winters’ include snow skiing, walking in the silence of a fresh snow, and finding creative ways to stay warm. Cooking is one of my happy places as I try to make the world a better place through one yummy taste at a time and I want to see the whole world in unique ways.Backpacking through Europe, barging In France,cycling from London to Rome, and trekking the Sahara are a few travel highlights. My eyes truly light up when I get to hover near my family; husband, Randy and my kids; Luke, and Rachael(Johnny) and Hannah (Chad) and two grandsons Santiago and Solomon. My vocational passion is to love those on the fringe and fight for the most marginalized of society, which I currently do through a street level church in Kelowna Canada.

Cycling since school age chasing buses to school, and now aged 53, I have stepped up cycling in the last 7 years with weekend rides and endurance 300/500km rides in 24hrs, wisdom/body is now telling me that multi day riding more fun... More recently cycled across Atlas mountains North Africa and now across Sri Lanka. The Madagascar full trip will be the longest period for me, but love the challenge and expect to wrestle with inner daemons and dig deep for when the ride begins to bite; It always brings a smile to my face once I've sat down with coffee in hand and consider how lucky I am.

I am so excited to join this ride! I have ridden in Italy, Spain, Croatia, Vietnam , Cambodia and across America. This is sure to be the coolest location yet! I am married and have 2 adult children, their spouses and a 6 year old grandson, all of whom are the light of my life! In addition to biking, I love everything outdoors including snow and water skiing and teach adaptive snow and waterskiing as well. Because I am retired, I spend my time volunteering for Hospice, for an adaptive sports program and at our local hospital with our therapy dog Mollie. Life is grand and I look forward to this wonderful adventure with all of you!

I have the wanderlust. What better way to do it than by bike? I have traveled extensively and recently did the SAE and Silk Route. What fun and challenging trips. I am hitting that sweet spot in age where the time, energy and desire are there to challenge myself to new adventures. I look forward to sharing this challenging experience with my fellow adventurers.

“DO IT. Madagascar is a fantastic country to cycle in. The scenery is amazing, the people are friendly and helpful.”

“Madagascar is one of the last wild places left in the world. It’s a precious place, with an incredible range of landscapes, as well as wildlife and vegetation that can’t be found anywhere else on earth. This tour gives the opportunity to tackle challenging roads, coast through colourful villages, and experience this unforgettable island in depth.”

“The guidance of the tour was perfect. The staff gave all what was possible to support the riders. I enjoyed the mixture of cycling and visiting the natural-sites of Madagascar. The two-days boat trip on the river was a highlight for me.”
