Bob Winstanley was born and brought up in Stetchford, Birmingham during the 1930's and '40s. His love of long-distance cycling began around 1950 when a friend suggested they cycle to Wales. In a week, they went 500 miles to Pwllheli and back and amazed at the distance they had covered, a passion was born. Bob is now based in Thailand, returning to England yearly to visit family and friends. England is an ideal place after all to start his current cycling trips, such as touring through Spain, as he did this summer. At home in Thailand he leads a group of ex-pat Sunday cyclists and regularly goes out for a ride of eighty miles or more. Bob is now an incredible seventy-eight year old.
