About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Traveller and writer
Location Near London, United Kingdom
Introduction Having devoted most of my adult life to being a ‘company man’, the transition to the next phase of my life away from the construction industry was always going to include some challenges. Planning and then making my dream trip to explore America on my Harley-Davidson proved to be the ideal vehicle for clearing my mind of old ways of thinking and being. I rode 21,475 miles, in 27 US states in four-and-a-half months. My motorcycling trips have continued, with journeys across much of Europe, New Zealand, North Africa and Cuba. A few years ago, I set up and now run Tour1, which takes riders on Harley-Davidson Authorised tours across Europe. See www.tour1.co.uk. I live just north of London in the UK.
