Hi. My name is Maureen, and I am passionate about bicycle touring and anything to do with bicycles. The Cross Canada tour has been on my "bucket list" for many years, and I was planning to do it in 2017, so to be able to do it as a special event to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday, is a bonus. Starting in Haida Gwaii, and circumnavigating the Gaspe Coast, where I grew up, is awesome. I have cycled the Orient Express trip with TDA, and have participated in, or led many bike tours through Canada, the States, France, Italy, New Zealand, and Australia - both supported and self-support, but this will be my dream come true! I'm looking forward to meeting my fellow adventurers on this epic journey!

I am a keen cyclist who particularly likes endurance riding. Having previously lived in Malaysia in the 70s and having done a little humanitarian work in Laos, I’m looking forward to experiencing Asia again from a different perspective. It will be a lot hotter than France & Italy and I expect the hills will be just as hard.

From Doomsday to Shangri-La .... I keep telling everyone around me that it is a “once in a lifetime experience” (but then the next adventure awaits)... once is never enough! Looking forward to rendezvous with the TDA family, spending long days with pedaling adventurers on our quest to find the Tibetan Kingdom.
