I have loved bicycles since I was very little. I think I might have been able to ride a bike before walking. I have liked nearly all of the bikes I have had from the Raleigh Roller (in the picture above) to my heavy new steel VSF touring bike.
I have also raced BMX's and Road bikes and I am nearly always in a good mood when i'm riding a bike. I love whizzing down hills and over bumpy things, but I also like climbing up hills (which some people find strange), because I love the reward of getting to the top and looking out over the land.
I have visited over 80 countries, 40 by bike. I have cycled 26,000 kms and by the end of 2019, I hope to have reached 41,000 kms which will be a loop around the Earth.
