Allan E. Stokell renewed his interest in bicycles 20 years ago. Since then he has project managed a cycling map, written and lectured on sharing the road with cyclists, been a member of the City of Toronto Cycling (Advisory) Committee, become a year 'round cycling commuter, and most recently has put together several prototype electrically assisted tricycles and bicycles.
In 2009 he lead a series of cycling tours of the City of Toronto as well as several 2 day out of town tours. He also ran seminars on cycle touring. Touring 101 and Touring 2.0 were held at the Centre for Social Innovation in Toronto.
For fun when he is not credit-card touring with his stoker on their tandem, Allan does unsupported international tours on one of his many bicycles and stealth camps.
In 2010 Allan founded tourcycle.ca an internet based tour enterprise offering eco-friendly bicycle tours in Europe and North America.
