About Me
I am.a relatively experienced touring cyclist and bikepacker. I've ridden from Bangkok to Beijing, toured the Alps amd Pyrenees a number of times and cycled all over the UK.
In July 2016 I left home in the UK and rode south through Europe and Africa to reach Cape Town 17 months later.
I then sailed across the Atlantic to the Caribbean.
From there I made it to Suriname, then Guyana and Brazil.
As I write I am in Manaus, Northern Brazil and heading for Peru to visit Macchu Pichu and then heading south through the Andes.
I am a young 55 year old; patient, considerate and trustworthy.
I have a typical British sense of humour and am usually smiling. I love music, reading amd the great outdoors.
I'm usually camping when I ride, always looking for nice places to visit, and spending time with good people.
I am easy going and friendly so if you want to join me for a time you will be welcome.
