We were all children once. Here's a Primer 1 photo from 1967 of my friend, and fellow Hands Across the Water rider, Andrew Blair (bottom left) and me (top right).
Both of us again, 12 January 2013, at Home Hug orphanage, Yasothon, Thailand, after completing Hands Across the Water's northern bike ride alongside the Mekong River from Nong Khai - 800km in 8 days.
Fundraising for the southern ride on 4 November 2013 with my Ministry of Transport friends Brenden Crocker and Felicity Connell. The 10-hour spinathon held at Habit Evans Bay raised $4,300, with the generous support of 20+ riders.
Putting myself to the test: completing the 160km Taupo Challenge on 30 November. Jacket from Brenden, bike from Mike Booker and photo by Stephannie who waited 1.5 hours under an umbrella. Time? 9 hours with stops (the bike wanted to go faster). Photographed with fellow Hands rider Nickie Race-Jones.

  1. Crikey lots of numbers there. 1-9-6-7 is a bit disconcerting. 160 and 10000 are top efforts. 800 will be fantastic. Make sure you bring enough clothes wash to wash your roomies riding kit each night......
