RIDE FOR SIGHT 2015

This year’s ride for sight we wanted to win, but not just the mixed category….overall in the tandems! This accomplishment is not seen or heard of regularly and male tandems that will recall being in such a situation have vivid, nightmare flashbacks of putting their entire beings on the line to prevent a mixed tandem from crossing that white line in More…

SA MIXED TANDEM ROAD CHAMPIONS 2015

After our introduction to the 2015 racing season with the Fast one in JHB, it was a last minute dash to the metaphoric “line” to get an entry in for the South African road championships in Nelspruit. Having beat the deadline by an hour, we were entered. So bags were packed once again and we made the trip up to More…

TOP STEP OF THE PODIUM FOR THE 2015 LOGISTICS FAST ONE

The 2015 racing season has been much anticipated…December last year saw many hours pass by on the mountain bike in what we crazy cyclists refer to as base miles….it’s all about the base after all. This year,I have teamed up on tandem with Juanita Venter from Centurion, a World Time Trial champ in her age category, a potent and well respected elite More…

CORONATION DOUBLE CENTURY 2014-2ND PLACE

So I was lucky enough to be invited back to the Hotchillee experience for this year’s Double Century cycle race that sweeps through the beautiful regions in and around Swellendam, Western Cape. This, for many riders, is  one of the highlights on the cycling calendar. It marks the closing of the racing season, the beginning of a training season for More…

BERG AND BUSH 2014

Life is about living in the present…enjoying your family, enjoying your hobbies, and enjoying your friends… What better way to combine all of the above than on the berg and bush set in the beautiful town of Winterton. I partnered up again with David Walsh from Bloem- we are essentially brothers; we ride alike, we think alike and some even More…

TRANSBAVIAANS 2014

6 weeks ago I was wondering aimlessly into the void of goalless training and we all know what that means…tomorrow is another today, why ride today? So what better motivation to get those legs thrusting the pedals than a 230km traverse of the mighty Baviaans with an awesome friend, David Walsh..one of my great buddies from the good ‘ol Bloem More…

TRIBUTE TO A GREAT COMEDIAN AND ACTOR

It is strange how true human emotion can be masked so well by some…. Although Robin suffered from major depression he certainly lived his stage personality to the creed he laid out in Dead Poet’s Society….Carpe Diem… I am a huge fan of Robin’s work and have thoroughly enjoyed his Liege of wonderful movies.. Robin, thanks for uplifting our lives More…

OPTICAL ILLUSIONS

Optical illusions push us beyond the boundary of what our brains perceive as real.. Walk yourself through this unreal journey to show you that the mind has the ability to coax us into believing images and colours exist in time and space because that is how we assume it should be… These images and illusions add another dimension to our More…

SANI2C 2014

It’s that time of year again…for what I believe is the greatest multi-stage event this country has to offer, the SANI2C… A weekend of great comradery, adventure, and South African landscape at its best.. For the second year running, I partnered up with Russel Horwood from Knysna. We have thoroughly enjoyed our riding together and there is something about stretching More…

THE BEAUTIFUL BAVIAANS

Living in the Southern Cape allows for a myriad of escape routes into paradise away from paradise over weekends. We packed the cars to the hilt, mostly with kid’s stuff and headed off to the middle of the Baviaanskloof for a weekend away with great friends.. No cell reception, bare, stark nature at its best, paraffin lamps as electricity, and mountain bike heaven made More…
