WHO ARE WE?
Hello! We are Clarence and Carmen Poon and welcome to our midlife crisis project! Some people respond to the changes in midlife by buying an expensive sports car. We decided to do something a bit more unconventional. We moved to Mexico and started a bicycle tour and rental company.
Originally from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, we both love cycling and jumped at the chance to move to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Although we do not consider ourselves adventurous, we literally decided from one week to the next, to move to Mexico. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Is a recreational cyclist who loved exploring the diverse network of Calgary's bicycle paths with Clarence and their son. In the past she also commuted, but only during fair weather. (Why Clarence wanted to ride in -20 degree weather is lost on her.) She now enjoys discovering Puerto Vallarta by bike, finding wonderful new places to ride, both in the city and the country.
Has over 30 years of cycling experience, over 5 years experience full time as a professional bicycle tour guide in Puerto Vallarta and has ridden over 60,000 kilometers in the area. He is an avid road cyclist who has raced with a variety of teams over the years and was very active in the Calgary cycling community. He is extremely knowledgeable about bicycle tech and cycling in general. He also commuted year-round on his bicycle while living in Calgary. Since moving to Puerto Vallarta, he loves being able to ride all year without having to use studded tires and thermal clothing!
