Dennis loves the out-of-doors. And when he’s not working on his computer, he’s outside doing the things he loves the most. Having recently retired to Marquette, Michigan on the shore of Lake Superior, Dennis takes advantage of the year-round activities the area has to offer: skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, biking and camping. Of all these, his favorite activity is biking the many trails around the city and through the surrounding forest. During the warmer months, it’s a rare day that he doesn’t. Dennis also likes to travel and to have a bike wherever life takes him. "Unlike my regular mountain bike, what I love about the Jupiter Bike Discovery is that I can fold it up and stow it in the back of my SUV; no need to hassle with a bike rack."
