Michael Jack, Trans-American Cyclist

 Name:  Michael Jack

Michael Jack

Occupation:  Chartered Building Surveyor 

Nationality: Scottish

Place of Residence: Leeds, Yorkshire

Background and Personal History:  Michael is a part-time adventurer, full-time Chartered Surveyor residing in the UK. He is benefiting from very kind employers and taking three months off to cycle the 4,200 miles of the Trans-American trail, passing through ten states and 4 time zones. It is Michael's second sabbatical in two years — the last was canoeing the MacKenzie river in the Canadian North West Territories. Read his canoeing blog here.

A nice break from the rat race, Michael is a big net user of the cliché and therefore his attitude is aligned with the ideas that you only live once, life is what you make it and you should follow your dreams.

Current Projects:  Trans-Amercian Trail 2013!
