Hey Derek. I was so touching when i read the article about you. Your lifestyle is exactly what I want to follow. Your life are always a challenge. If you need a partner, I’d like to be one. Good luck to your journey.

    Hi George,

    I rode Canada last year, starting in May from Vancouver, see http://www.dereksbiketrip.com/the-goodwill-tour/ and then all the way across West to East, taking in the Rocky Mountains. It was magical, in more ways than words can adequately describe. I will return again, God willing.
