My passions lie in service travel and bike riding everywhere in the world.

I have ridden by bicycle all over the world except for Antarctica. My most recent bike ride was August 2015, in England with a group called Cyclist for Cultural Exchange. There were cyclists from nine different countries.
I enjoy travelling and spending time with my partner, Cliff, and also spending time whenever possible with my three sons, their wives and my six little grandchildren.
