In His Own Words

About him

I want to enjoy as many as I can of the amazing delights of this life with a congenial companion whose presence, interests and responses enhance all occasions and who values mutual support and sharing, especially when life is not so straightforward.
I'm on this site because my preferred mode of travel these days is by bike. For several reasons. Because cycling as much as possible seems the only logical choice for someone who is not only concerned about climate change but wants to do as much as s/he can to reduce carbon emissions. But for other reasons, too, of course. Staying fit and healthy. Avoiding the incarceration that other modes of travel subject one to, confining one to cramped and often crowded accommodation, mechanised ventilation, others' timetables. Allowing instead a considerable degree of freedom and choice, and, perhaps most important of all, direct contact with the natural world, and enjoyment of sounds and sights and scents throughout the journey and opportunities to pause to enjoy these through all five senses in a way that is impossible when cooped up in a car, or train or plane. Increasingly leisurely touring seems by far the best way of getting to know new territory as one passes through.
I'm not just talking about cycling, of course.

About his ideal match

Someone who feels much the same way as I do about what I have just said above and would enjoy long-distance (cycle) touring through France and many other parts of Europe.
