Q&A With Ross

Q.

Favorite tour?

A.

San Juan Islands Tour – “Lions, Tigers and Bears … Oh My!!! Actually, it’s more like Whales, Seals and Eagles … Oh My!!! The San Juan Islands are a world and a ferry ride away from the mainland. Cycle and enjoy the island lifestyle while you learn about the 1859 Pig War. Ride the flats on Lopez Island and the rolling hills of Orcas Island and conquer Mt. Constitution on your bike or on a hike.”

Q.

Who is your cycling hero?

A.

Greg Lemond – He rode hard, paid his dues, and became a Tour de France champion.
