I certainly describe myself as a novice. I am certainly addicted to the ride and the journey then I am to the bike itself. The feeling of riding with my husband on long and short journey's is certainly the best feeling. I have, this year, joined the Ulysses Club. Travelled by bike from WA to SA and NSW, travelled around WA and making plans for more big rides next year. We all need to be doing more of what we enjoy!
