About Me

My first big biking adventure was a tour of the backcountry of Guatamala in the 1990s. Mountain bikes were barely born - we rode road bikes. Rediscovered the meaning of life on the MTB trails around Moab in 2013 and cheated death on the Captain Ahab trail there. I'm a New Zealander and live here at least six months of the year; love being in the great outdoors, especially the mountains - skiing, hiking and biking; After a varied career as a soldier, teacher, stock broker, accountant, production manager and gold prospector, I now do seasonal work in between travelling and living the dream. I'm divorced, and my children have grown up.

Walking over Thorong La Pass is breathtakingly hard at nearly 18,000 feet - biking over would be uber-extreme!!!
