Few can lay claim to heading out on a personal challenge as if it were something to be accomplished alone. So, with that in mind and to make this journey a bit less selfish, I hope I can be mindful enough to thank all those who help make this happen.

Here is a start of thanks:

Leisa Weld – for being understanding and supportive and so many other things too.

Pearson College Board of Trustees – and in fact everyone at Pearson College for allowing me to take a four-month mini-sabbatical break after completing six years as the College Director.

Mark Bannar-Martin – for serving as Acting College Director during my absence.

Jim Freer – for being a bike geek’s geek. Jim gives great advice and in-depth research on every piece of equipment.

Petr Salaba – for showing me how to create a blog in about fifteen minutes.

Mo and Alan – from Geography of Youth for being an inspiration.

Elton Pope-Lance – from Harris Cyclery who first introduced me to Rivendell Bikes.

David & Vicki – for taking the shipped bike into their home for a while until I could get to Seattle and pedal it into Canada.
