But, wait! There's more.

Dennis is an avid road cyclist who once pedaled his trusty 10-speed for a 1,000-mile “bike-packing” adventure. He still tries to average 50 miles per week when the weather’s good. He’s also a devoted fan of jazz-rock fusion and travel, if not always by bicycle. He calls himself a “remarkably average golfer.”
