George Broome is a consulting geological engineer recently retired from full time employment after spending 42 years in the oil and gas industry. He has a passion for cycling and the outdoors, and a desire to push his limits whenever possible. George grew up in Santa Fe and Pecos, New Mexico riding bikes, horses and riding in rodeos. George returned to cycling in 1991 when his son, Brent, began racing mountain bikes and he decided to join in rather than stand around and watch. Since then George has been racing and doing adventure cycling trips with his wife, Lisa, in many parts of the world including Bhutan, Tibet, Mongolia, New Zealand, Guatemala, Mexico and Europe.
