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.

Weird choices!!! Apart from Porcupine Rim but it you're going to do it you might as well do the Whole Enchilada which it forms part of... The Old Ghost Road in New Zealand would be in my top 5... In Moab I liked the combination of Hymasa and Captain Ahab best.
