Someone asked me the other day if i ever get sick of riding bikes. I actually couldn’t even fathom the question. It is like asking whether i ever get sick of breathing? I have always ridden a bike. I think i had a skateboard only for a year when i was 13 because i had broken my bike, but i think i went back into bikes in an even bigger way. My one regret is that i didn’t even know you could race them, or i would have been right into that asap. My love affair with bikes got to fever pitch when i rode from Perth to Darwin when i was 20 years old. Including the Gibb River Road, unsupported on a bike with no suspension and all my provisions including tent packed into my side bags. Maybe i will write a bit of history about how i got into bikes sometime. What do you think?
The house that we just moved into has an awessome downhill track in the front yard complete with 3 berms and a set of double jumps. It is one of the reasons i bought the house. Thanks Tony Tucknott, we love it! We also are just across the valley from the goat farm. mmm. location location location! i can watch the guys riding the downhill section while i eat breakfast.
