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
