I started cycling 15 years ago for the exercise.
Motto: Slow and steady is the way to go.
I now spend a lot of time on the trail as a volunteer.
I like to travel as well, normally by car but for the long distances I will fly.
Today I cycled from Coles creek (Milton) to Darlington and return. Cool at 2 and a strong west wing gusting to 60km/h. A lot of the trail is sheltered but there is a few open places. When going west and met one of those gusts it would almost stop you in your tracks.
