Bike: Traditional ‘squared’ frame of Reynolds steel. Shimano ‘mix & match’ componentry.
Motivation: Having the opportunity to test one’s abilities of endurance and mindset
Inspiration: Various people who I’ve read about and met over the years, who have completed epic journeys
Why Help MADCOW? Benefitting a worthy cause. Opportunity to support a section of our local community who need our help in a real and practical way.
Most challenging aspect: The early starts during a fairly cool/cold winter
Funniest Moment: Inadvertently riding with cycling shorts inside out (hope no-one noticed!)
Interesting Training Partner: Not any one person, but the younger members of the group whom I admire/congratulate on their enthusiasm, discipline & commitment
Favourite bakery: Elmore … but, as they say, ‘any port in a storm’
Distance Goal: Uncommitted to any specific distance, Will see ‘which way the wind is blowing’, Hope to be there when the ‘whips are cracking’
Biggest Fear: No real fears, I’m confident that a well-organised and well-supported venture will be successful
Most Looking Forward to: A successful and rewarding result/achievement with a group of likeminded people (participants & support crew)
After the Ride: A planned trip along the NSW central coast
