Wheel's Cycling Gets Serious

Cycling moved up a gear after I left University.

Adi. Full of Adventure. A Match Made in Heaven.

My mother had great plans for me in life. She hoped that not only would I get a degree and a good safe Government job but that I would meet and full in love with a university girl settle down and be financially comfortable for the rest of my life.
Early Days Cycling in New Zealand.

Thank God life doesn't always work out as planned.

Dream girls do exist. Adi was happy to pack the pannier bags any time and head off into the country-side for a week or two of cycle camping.
