  • Position: Purchaser
  • Favourite saying: "It's on back order"
  • Why I ride: Why not? Been doing since 1974 so why stop now. I'm a tourist, a commuter and a randonneur. I'm done over 200,000 kilometres since I started recording weekly distance in 1979. Can you think of a better thing to do? 8000 - 12,000 km a year
  • Favourite bike I ride: Too many to mention: My many custom Tamaracks? especially my green and white Tamarack randonneur bike - Ultegra wheels and the sweet ride of steel --my custom Mariposa? --my other Mariposa? --my '81 Holdsworth? --my '82 Ritchey?
  • Favourite trail: The Cabot Trail (18 times and counting!)
  • Most memorable bike ride: It's hard to narrow down the most memorable experiences - there have been so many! --my first solo week-long tour in 1981 --my cross-Canada ride in 1982 --a Four month, and 8800km around New Zealand on a loaded touring bike in 1984 . --my one hundred fifty centuries --tours of Arizona, Vermont, Ireland --completing the Raid Pyreneen in the Pyrenees of France in 2001 --completing the 1225 km Paris-Brest-Paris event in France in 84 hours in 2003
  • Why I ride to work: Because it's the right thing to do, always, 6 km.
  • Best thing about working at Cyclesmith: All the great people with whom I work.
  • Favourite post ride beverage: Guinness draft or anything British or Irish. ">
