We are pleased to announce the winner of the 2014 Dream Tour Giveaway is Tom Carmine of Newport News, Virginia.
Tom became a member of Adventure Cycling in 2002 after meeting other members when he rode the Great Allegheny Passage from DC to Pittsburgh in 2001. Tom’s interest in touring goes all the back to college. “Having graduated from college in 1976 in Williamsburg, I was always fascinated by the then ’76 Bikecentennial Trail that passed through town. Not having time for a TransAmerica trip, I have had to settle for some bike overnights on my mountain bike.” Tom finally acquired a touring bike last year, so when an Introduction to Road Touring course was scheduled in Virginia, Tom knew it was time to sign up for the class. “I have always looked at a bike as a tool to go places so this chance to do a bike tour in 2014 is very exciting.”
