NED RAYNOLDS - OWNER
Ned is a lifelong cyclist, from commuting to work by bicycle while living in Washington DC and San Francisco, or training for Olympic and Sprint distance triathlons over the years (the Santa Barbara, Donner Lake, and Niantic Bay (CT) are favorites), but it was a pre-35th U.S. Coast Guard Academy class reunion ride traversing Long Island over 4 days that got Ned hooked on bicycle touring. After co-leading on Senior Cycling's GAP and Cape Cod tours in 2022, he knew the chance to own and operate Senior Cycling was the chance of a lifetime. While serving in the NH State Legislature during the first half of the year, Ned relies on the tremendous corps of experienced tour leaders you see below, but he relishes leading as many tours as possible from July through November!
