Mike Jennett

Originally British, I’ve spent the last 25 years traveling the world scratching out a living as a freelance programmer.

 Wheels on the bike go round and round 16: Desert RapWheels on the bike go round and round 16: Desert Rap by Mike Jennett
The day’s de-briefing and anticipation of next day’s ride is known as Route Rap. For around ten minutes or so, we get to hear how many flats there were, what happened to whom and, most importantly, where we go for dinner.
 Wheels on the bike go round and round 15: First DayWheels on the bike go round and round 15: First Day by Mike Jennett
I would not like Tracy’s job today. I wouldn’t like it on any day but, on a day where anything and everything can happen, I would not want to be the person in charge. I am not overly patient and freely admit tha

 Wheels on the bike go round and round 11: Admin DayWheels on the bike go round and round 11: Admin Day by Mike Jennett
This is it; Day1.That’s Day 1 on the Crossroads calendar. To my way of thinking, it should be Day 0, so here is our first terminological conflict.In my mind, the experience begins with the first downward t
 Wheels on the bike go round and round 14: Wheel DippingWheels on the bike go round and round 14: Wheel Dipping by Mike Jennett
30 people dressed in black shorts and multi-colored cycling shirts, running down the sand, some with bikes held above their heads, is not something you usually see at 7.30 am on a Sunday – even in Los Angeles.The few
