Neal Abello. Age 75. I have enjoyed being a Tour Guide since Santa Barbara Wine Country Cycling Tours started in 2005.
I retired in 2002 after teaching High School Biology for 31 years. I have always enjoyed cycling and one of my most memorable cycling experiences was riding from Newport Beach, CA. to Boston in 32 days in 2004. I have been racing in the Senior Games since 2011. I love meeting people from all over the world to show them our beautiful Santa Ynez Valley and teach them something of its history, biology and agriculture.
In addition to cycling, I enjoy nature photography and world travel with my wife.
