This blog is by Chris Bennett, a 60+ year old who enjoys bikepacking, cycling, running and triathlons, even though he isn’t particularly good at the latter (especially the swimming).
A Civil Engineer by training, I work for the World Bank in the transportation sector. This means lots of travel so I get to train in very interesting – and not so interesting – places. Originally Canadian, we lived from 2003-9 in Washington D.C. which is a great city to train in, with many clubs and places to escape the city. If you have to live in a large city in America, this is a hard place to beat. I started triathlons while living in D.C.
From 2010-19 I telecommuted from New Zealand while working on the World Bank’s Pacific program. I’ve got stories from my World Bank adventures here.
I love bikepacking and my web site www.lpcb.org has my trip journals from various adventures. It also has all my technical publications and papers if you are a glutton for punishment.
My race – and life – support is through my long-suffering wife Lis Pedersen. Originally Danish, we met in New Zealand where she was my nurse in hospital. I may have got a bad knee, but that was a small price to pay for a wonderful wife. She is a self-appointed ambassador extolling the virtues of New Zealand to anyone who will listen.
