Bike Ride profiles

BAE Systems Canada
As a proud sponsor of the Navy Bike Ride, we’re checking in with our employees taking part (when we can catch them on the road that is) to find out how they are getting on and why they chose to join riders across Canada in this fantastic effort to raise funds for the Royal Canadian Benevolent Fund and Support our Troops.

    Name: Bob

    Business Development Manager
    BAE Systems Submarines
  • I’ve really enjoyed finding new places to explore, and mainly just trying to keep safe and enjoy the rides!

    I work in our BAE Systems Submarines business and I live in Ottawa with my wife Leah, our two dogs (Mason & Izzy) and our cat Maggie!

    Our work is important in that we help the Royal Canadian Navy maintain its fleet of Victoria Class Submarines, ensuring that we provide high quality products that allow the performance of critical national defence activities.
     
    I have a brother who was a Petty Officer 2nd Class as a medic; and as a former Naval Officer myself, I believe the ride will help raise funds to support our veterans, especially those who served during the Battle of Atlantic so I was really keen to take part and get involved.
     
    I’m into sports of all sorts, international affairs, reading and music and I cycle for both exercise and the pleasure of a slow ride to enjoy our beautiful city.
     
    I like to try out various routes and explore the city. It’s great to be cycling again and plan to purchase an e-bike soon.
