Jonathan Klein

Rider
Casablanca to Cape Coast

United States

Age sixty-seven. Retired from U.S. Forest Service where I managed recreation and wilderness in Montana. Married with two cats (wait that sounds like both polygamy and bestiality, so to clarify, I am married to a woman and we have two cats). Home is Ennis, Montana not far from Yellowstone Park. Much of my spare time is spent trying to write a book about a solo canoe trip I undertook in 2012 from Saskatchewan to Hudson Bay, a trip of 700 miles over seven weeks that nearly killed me. I do a fair amount of bike riding, 2016 in the Pyrenees, and 2018 in the Dolomites. I like to think that there are no adults on bicycles and that every revolution of the pedals pulls sand from the bottom of the hourglass to the top.

“Experiencing the countryside and culture of West Africa was everything I’d hoped it would be, and the tour gave us the freedom to do so in our own way, while providing excellent support and logistics.”

“An incredible experience that I am still trying to describe. I look at the photos and I am in awe of what we have experienced.”

“In the fast-growing category of adventure cycling vacations, it’s safe to say that this one...was on the extreme end...The region has been more associated with civil war, disease and extremists than bucket-list challenges. But as political and economic stability has increased in recent years, so has the number of foreign tourists.”
