I have a beautiful wife Pippa, two gorgeous children Meg and Max and a puppy named Piper.
How did I come to be part of the great RFY initiative? I've been a keen road cyclist and mountain biker for many years. I'm also acutely aware of the fact that even though we live in the 'lucky' country, depression and other mental health issues are so prominent in our community. It is essential to provide readily accessible help to young people suffering from depression.
When I signed up for the Hawaiian RFY and I was talking about this around the dinner table with my family, explaining that I would be doing a big ride in 2021. My daughter Meg, who finishes school this year, took a very keen, almost over the top, interest in the ride. She was so eager she even volunteered to be my support person on the ride. Her keenness was severely dampened when she realised that the ride wasn't in Hawaii.
We are a hockey-playing family and spend a good part of winter watching Meg and Max play their matches. I play in the 50's competition and have been playing for so long now that I'm sure one day I will have had enough practice that I will be good at the game.
