It was at uni that I became passionate about getting around on two wheels – and I’ve never stopped! My short rides to uni extended to riding around town, round the country and, eventually, round (bits of) the world. I love the freedom, the environmental, social and health benefits – and not paying for parking or petrol! Over the years, I’ve worked in a bike shop, edited a bike magazine, written Lonely Planet cycling guidebooks and taught workshops. I still ride for transport as much as I can (with or without my three children), and for fun and fitness with a social road-riding bunch.
