About Me

Hi my name is Simon and I'm from New Zealand. I guess New Zealand is famous for all those sheep, it's All Blacks and it's amazing unspoilt scenery. The people here have a great sense of Adventure and are well known as travellers and explorers. Born and bred in Christchurch where we are 20 minutes from the beach and just over an hour to the Southern Alps. I work in Real Estate at Harcourts Ilam for a living and as a hobby have spent the last 10 years organising cycling events in NZ retiring in 2015 with the NZ Elite National Road Championships. The baton has been handed over for now.... I am the guy who has crazy ideas like chartering a plane, selling seats and taking some mates (with bikes onboard) across the country to ride in some race. I love travelling, climbing and riding.. The current project is a bit of property development and running 7 Marathons on 7 Continents. Hence writing this Blog. The ultimate for me is 7 Summits from 7 Continents..... Watch this space...
