About the Author

My love affair with bikes and nature started as a kid with my first BMX. It was a black Redline which I took great joy in thrashing around the local bushland of Southern Sydney and quite unsuccessfully over a few homemade jumps! Needing to regain some fitness after a few bikeless years over in the wilds of Western Australia, I resurrected my old hardtail from the shed and took to the fire trails of the Blue Mountains. From my first pedal stroke on the Oakes fire trail I was once again instantly hooked by the mountain biking bug. Since then, fuelled by my secret trail food of jelly snakes, Ive clocked up a few thousand kms around Sydneys trails, been navigationally embarrassed regularly, spilt my fair share of blood to appease the MTB gods, dodged plenty of wildlife, and gone through a pile of shiny bike bits in a number of weird and wonderful trail side mechanics. Like most mountain bikers I seem to have a serious coffee addiction, a love of the epic ride, eBay, and a firm belief in the N+1 law. My love of both aeroplanes and cameras has lead to a career in aerial survey and has allowed me to see most of this magnificent country from the air, and finances my love of shiny new bike bits. I now live in southern Sydney with my lovely wife and Lucy the wonder dog, who is in training to become a trail dog extraordinaire! I try to hit my local trails as often as I can and am usually joined by the guys and girls from the Metro MTB club. Despite not being blessed with any athletic ability whatsoever I still enjoy the odd 24 hour or 50-100 km race, and can often be found at the back of the pack, coughing up a lung or two, and muttering about how heavy my bike is.
