Name: Stan Armington
Adviser to the club.
Name: Piet van der Poel
Since 1993, Piet has worked off and on as advisor to the Ministry of Agriculture of Bhutan, covering topics from geomorphology to community based natural resources management, shortly anything goes. And so it does for his cycling. He has ridden road bikes, MTB's and heavy Indian Hero's across Bhutan on-road as well as off-road, clocking more than 10,000 km and still going strong. He is probably the only one having done the 3000+ m climb from Lingmethang to Thrumshing La twice. Actually, he is 77 years old, half blind, pleasantly disturbed and has a wooden leg. It has not stopped him.
So what is your excuse?
