My Bike: 2017 Canyon Endurace
Years riding: 10
Kms per week: 300 kms
I completed the 2019 RSR earlier this year. During the ride I had an opportunity to meet many people who had been involved with Solaris, either for themselves or through relatives and friends. It was so rewarding for me to help an organisation that is so well respected throughout the community. As an added bonus, the bonds and friendship I have made with other riders has been wonderful!
I began cycling when I was a teenager, mainly for fitness. I bought my first road bike when I was about 17 - I rode it every day and commuted to work.
I have continued to ride regularly throughout my life. I love the freedom it gives me, along with personal space - my best ideas and deepest thinking is done on my bike.
In more recent years, I have shared many holidays with friends on cycling expeditions.
