Hi Everybody ,I like to inform you all of a new site that I am a guest blogger on which is called Long Division, the blog was started by my long term cycling pal Brian Southwick and is all about bike packing and our lead up to racing in the 2015 Tour Divide race !, yes that is right Brian & I have decided that being in our mid 40s is a good time to take on the worlds toughest and longest bicycle race . In you visit the blog at the link below you will get some idea of what the 4417km course looks like and I think because we have plenty of time before the race in 2015 we will be well prepared by then. The blog features Tour Divide info, our own bike packing adventures and some product reviews and the equipment we will use such as bikes, bags , tents etc . So if you have time head on over to the following link and check it out Long Division
Follow me on 2013 Salsa El Mariachi single speed and my cycling companion Brian as we explore the countryside of rural Niigata ken such as small mountain villages, historic buildings, fantastic scenery, onsens, local cuisine. Cycling as it should be relaxed and enjoyable .
A 47 year old Kiwi who has recently returned to Oamaru, New Zealand to be closer to my family and other like minded people who share similar interests.
I am trying to simplify my lifestyle these days and sold my car about 2 years ago so now only cycle or walk everywhere. I also have started wearing the Scottish kilts that have hung in my wardrobe for years, now I get to wear them and other traditional clothes everyday, That may seem eccentric to some but I'm sure it will make a lot of sense to the people who have known me for many years
