9780989884501: A Father and Daughter Bicycling Adventure: A Cross-Country Journey and a Six Week Tour of New Zealand's South Island

Discover how this father and daughter adventure team truly compliments each other as they prepare for a world wide bicycle tour. After facing a layoff and retirement when the last Space Shuttle flight ended in 2011 Mike decided to bicycle across the country. His daughter Jocelyn caught wind of this and immediately said, “I want to go!” Thus began the father and daughter bicycling adventures. Follow them through heartbreak and a major fall as they try to just make it out of Florida. As they battle the heat, wind, bicycle problems, then cold fronts they press on and enjoy the daily challenges. When Mike traveled to work in Antarctica a whole new playground, New Zealand, awaited this father and daughter duo. It was here they learned the real meaning of the Kiwi term “push bike” as the hills, mountains, wind and rain tried their best to slow this team down. The reward was an absolutely stunning journey. During both adventures they came to realize that a bicycle tour is all about the people you meet along the road.

About the Author:

Mike is a retired electrical engineer after working almost 30 years on the Space Shuttle Program. He then decided to travel and find adventure work while he awaits his wife’s retirement. In between two bicycling tours with Jocelyn he has spent the last two winters working as a satellite communications engineer in Antarctica at McMurdo Station and the South Pole. Jocelyn is an athlete, cyclist, and adventurer. She has spent the last two summers as a camp counselor and lifeguard in Washington State. Her career goal is to lead cycling expeditions around the world. With two cross country tours, a tour of New Zealand, and a solo bicycle ride from college in western North Carolina to home in Florida she is well on her way.
