Meet The BoD Q+A, Glenn Finlay

Happy day after the long weekend! Hope you got in some great rides on those sunny, warm days we had. Today we return to our Meet The BoD Q+A series where we meet Glenn Finlay. Glenn is an avid mountain biker and off-road enthusiast. As a Member At Large, Glenn acts as Liaison between the Club and the County regarding Northumberland Forest. Glenn also keeps us up to date on all things Road Construction related that may affect our routes. Ok, let’s hear more from him directly!

1. How many years have you been cycling?

I started mountain biking a lot with my sons probably 15 years ago. For road riding, James Barnes helped me in 2012 prepare for a 2 day charity ride. Lent me a bike for the summer and rode with me to get some seat time.

2. What is a highlight from your years of cycling?

I read about Sedona Arizona in a mountain bike magazine, then booked 3 days there with my sons. That was my first traveling bike trip. On the road, would be the charity ride Montreal to Quebec City.

3. What do you like best about being part of this cycling club?

The best part is the people you meet with common interests.

4. Any goals for the 2020 Cycling Season?

My goals have been scaled back, but I did manage to get my son back out on the trails.

5. Roadie or Off Roadie?

Off Roadie for sure!

6. Are you Team Short Socks or Team High Socks?

Short as possible.

7. Espresso or Americano?


8. What club rides can we find you on?

Dirty Thursdays for sure. I’ll be back to TTs next year.

Thanks for this Glenn! And thanks for all you do for the club! See you out on the gravel and trails!
