Meet the team behind canaldumidi.bike
Mark, founder. Mark is originally from the UK where he worked as a carpenter. After his retirement he and his wife moved to the south of France, a part of the world that they fell in love with many years ago. While fixing up his Canal Du Midi house boat he gets to meet and greet cyclists all the time, which was the original impulse for the creation of this website. His hobbies include boating, hiking, and cycling.
Peter, webmaster. Originally from Canada, Peter now calls the Capestang area his home. In his previous live he was an electrician. His hobbies include reading, computers, wine, and cycling. Peter joined Mark in 2017 and has since upgraded the site to its current format. In his own words, he takes our "raw data" and "upgrades" it to what you read on this website.
Vicky, writer, designer, spell checker. Originally from Australia, but now a happy local. Vicky loves learning about anything and everything French. When she is not in the library or behind her laptop she can be found exploring the French country side on her bicycle. Her constant search for more information makes her a perfect fit as our newest team member.
You, the reader. Of course the success of this site could not have been achieved without the support, emails, comments, and articles from you, the reader of this website. You help keep us motivated when the going gets tough. Thank you from all of us!
NEW: Due to possible abuse of the system, any future reviews and trip reports will need to include some sort of proof that one has actually been on such a trip. Such proof is most easily obtained by use of a picture of, for example, you on a bike along the Canal Du Midi.
