Janet: I am passionate about healthy living, playing outdoors, cooking and writing. With a doctorate in preventive care I love to be active mostly spending time pursuing human powered activities in the outdoors. I am a professor of health and human performance and love to talk about nutrition and physical activity when ever I can. I have been bike touring since I was a teenager traveling alone, with friends and now my wonderful husband. I am fond of any type of bike tour from credit card with fancy hotels to mountain bike back country camping. I have toured throughout Europe and the West coast of the US and plan on seeing as much of the world by bike as I can. I like to work up some gourmet meals in the back country- and enjoy a glass of regional wine in the evening…even when camping! Oh yeah, I can’t forget to mention my beautiful pound – puppies, Jazzy and Levi!
Jay: I’ve been riding a bike as long as I can remember. My first bike was stolen in the summer between 1st and 2nd grade. Since then, I’ve been involved in just about every different aspect of cycling. Racing was fun but, for me, it was mostly about pushing my own limits. Wrenching introduced me to the most incredible people. Touring is where my psyche, spirit and body completely mesh with the bike. The lure of the unknown, the next climb and, of course, the next meal make all the tribulations on the road irrelevant. Luckily I get to enjoy all this with my wife, Janet.
