22 February 2014 ~ Question of the Day ~ Bikes or a Motorcycle

Do you ride bikes anywhere?
If not, how about a motorcycle?
Tell us your story from a bike trip.

I ride my mountain bike (a Kona Caldera hard tale) occasionally – about once a week. Prior to getting the cancer I was doing about 200km per week on the bike (5 days a week).

In my younger days I did quite a bit of motorcycling, mostly on an XL250 Honda.

One of my more memorable cycling trips I just went for a Saturday morning ride, and decided to go up to the Mt Fyffe carpark (about 20km), and when I got there, I decided to go a little way up the mountain, then I went a bit further, and a bit further, and by 10:40am I was at the hut (a little over 3,500 ft), with a glorious view back down over the flats back to home. I hadn’t started out with the intention of riding that high, it just sorta happened. And it felt great.
