Its Wednesday night and I’ve just got back from 3 days traveling up around York Peninsula for work. A great part of South Australia, particularly down the bottom around Innes National Park
I know this isn’t a travel blog, but thought I’d add the following pictures in from Marion Bay. It looked gorgeous.
What I’m leading to is that there has been only a few hours together, so it is a little scant.
Andrew Hellinga smashed the world record for the longest distance travelled backwards in a 24 hour period on October 7th 2013.
Andy said “I was inspired by my mate Reid Anderton, who broke the world record for cycling a bicyce in 37 days around our country, a massive effort and a massive heart for children who live in poverty. I too am an advocate for children living in poverty in the country of Zambia and that is the sole reason why I have chosen to ride backwards today”.
The previous Guinness World Record was was 180km. Andrew’s attempt was part of the NZ Challenge and was his way to raise awareness and funds for children living in poverty.
I don’t think I’m alone in saying that I too can also ride backwards, but I can do it facing forwards!
Yep, it’s that time of the year where sane men feel their inner caveman urge to grow facial hair – all for a good cause of course.
I won’t be growing one, but of course if you are, it will need to be the handlebar.
There have been some famous riders over the years, but the best period would have to be at the turn of the century where the handlebar was the norm.
If anyone wants to post any developmental growth pictures over the next month, please email me your pictures for posting in this blog.
Cycling Tips are promoting Movember in a number of ways – further details here. #MoVelo
