Born in England and raised in Australia, David first joined

David, a keen outdoorsman with a passion for
cylcling, is looking forward to discovering Guangzhou and its
surrounding areas on two wheels.
“There is no better way to discover a place than
on a bike,” David said. “You can see the city from the ground up and it is
a great way to assimilate with a diverse range of people.”
