Cycling in Paradise

I may be biased; my ancestors were amongst some of the very first to settle in Bermuda, in 1609. My family therefore (on my mother’s side) are Bermudian through and through, something of which I am very proud! And if you’ve been to Bermuda, you will know why. The island is paradise.
