I do hope that you enjoy your visit here. For those who have visited this website before, you will probably find some additions and changes since your last visit. One of the immediate changes is a brand new logo. I decided to change the logo slightly by including a recumbent bicycle instead of an upright bicycle on the tenth anniversary of this website on October 19th, 2008. I made the transition of traveling around on a recumbent instead of an upright bicycle back in 2000.
This website has been over 480 awards from agencies, individuals, ministries, and organizations from 27 countries around the world. There is over 1,000 pages of information inside using almost 300 MegaBytes of space. Here are some
that readers have sent me.
As mentioned on the "HOME" page, navigation throughout the site should be quite easy for you. There is a pretty extensive Site Map Menu and the website has it's own search engine. At the bottom of each page there are navigation arrows that will help you navigate through the 1,000+ pages on this website. There is also a button at the bottom of each page that will allow you to jump to the top of that page without scrolling.
Each chapter (section) has an index page. Before you check out the individual chapters (sections), would you please check out the two introduction pages after this page. The first "intro" page shows stats for my missionary travels by bicycle. On the second "intro" page, four of the newest website awards that this site has been given are displayed. Along with the section about my travels, you will find sections on bicycle touring (in general , for the beginners), and multiple sections on religion (including my faith statement and testimony).
