Our final impala gets his turn today. Madison’s dad, Dave, is in the box now.
From: Frederick Maryland
How I got into cycling: When I was little I biked everywhere. When in high school I biked the whole Cape Cod. In my late 20s I then got into triathlons.
Favourite moments when cycling: I loved the stretch we did between Syringa to Grangeville when we went up the steepest hill on the trip before ending up riding on a plateau full of wheat fields. It was like being back in Kansas again.
Cheese or chocolate?: Cheese but it’s a close call
Biggest disappointment or negative moment when cycling: Madison getting injured on this trip. (She had acute tendinitis for the final half of the tour).
Say something funny: Treat your problems like a dog does. If you can’t eat it or screw it, then piss on it and walk away.
Cycling ambitions: Near my house there are 84 miles of mountain bike trails. I intend doing most or all of them.
If you were to strap a piece of bread and jam with the jam side up onto the back of a cat and drop it from a high building, how would it land?: The cat lands on its feet
Music: Sands of time by Paul Spaeth
Film: Groundhog Day
Five people you would like to have at a dinner party:
My daughter Madison
What would you serve: Complete catered multi course meal with unlimited variety
If anyone ever had a problem on this tour you could always be sure that Dave would be the first one there offering help.
Hope to see you again sometime down the line.
