In 1987, Alf Todd and his son Aaron (10 at the time) embarked on a Bicycle trip from Victoria, BC to San Francisco. 4 years later, Alf made the trip again, but this time with Aaron and his youngest son Adam (also 10 years old). In 2001, Alf yet again embarked on, what was now becoming a personal and sentimental favorite, to San Francisco. This time with his oldest daughter Cindy. All 3 trips were similar – averaging 145km a day for 11 days.
In 2007 Alf was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. He has always said he wanted to do the bike trip “one more time” and they are!
