Mike has had a lifelong interest in the outdoors, from hiking and youth hosteling in his native England to camping and hiking since immigrating in 1976. After a career as an Engineer and entrepreneur, retirement has given him opportunities to spend more time outdoors, especially cycling which is his new passion, and paddling. Winter he dons snowshoes or downhill skis. Widowed, with three married daughters and seven grandchildren, he is active in his church, and an avid gardener. 2018 will mark his third year as President; the Club is building on the success of the past 25 years to embrace new ways to organize and be a vibrant asset to our community. Mike is also filling the role of newsletter editor presently.
