To live will be an awfully big adventure…..
I’m always doing things I can’t do. That’s how I get to do them.
Welcomed into Wellington by the police, flashing lights and sirens!
The great art of life is sensation, to feel that we exist, even in pain – aka riding in the rain, headwind and dead road!
Let’s stick together
Go your own way
Pure magic, pure class
Live the life you imagine!
Best foot forward
Never trust an old lady who does not cycle when she tells you that is it is a short sharp, climb and then flat!
