I rode the Timber Trail today, and then got all excited and wrote a bunch of words about it: http://www.aride.org.nz/rides/day-rides/pureora-timber-trail-in-a-day/

Hello friends! Please donate to Arthritis New Zealand for my Longest Day Ride.

As you all know I'm passionate about/ obsessed with mountain biking. Four years ago I got arthritis in my feet - and thought that I'd never ride bikes again.

Fortunately I've learnt how to live with arthritis and every year I cycle from sunrise to sunset on the longest day of the year to remind myself not to let it get in the way of living a full and enjoyable life.

Please give generously so Arthritis NZ can continue to help people like me.Hello friends! Please donate to Arthritis New Zealand for my Longest Day Ride.

Looking at using Tagboard to stream the #longestdayride hashtag for this year's Longest Day Ride. I hope it works

I've been talking about this idea with a few people of late. Rather than filling the emotional need to connect with other people is social media just leaving us hungry for real engagement?

And yes, I know it's ironic posting this on social media. I even thought about using a hashtag, but then I'd need to stick my head in a bucket of water.

This is why I find the junk food analogy a good one.

Today I didn't have enough leftover pilaf for lunch to get me through the day - but I did have $5 in my pocket - it would have been easy to buy a pie and cram it into my mouth. 

But instead I went to the local supermarket, bought $5 worth of steak, and then cooked it in our sandwich press in the office kitchenette. 

Time wise it probably took me 10 minutes to cook the steak - which is bugger all really. But the biggest hurdle was getting my head around the idea that it was possible to have a steak for lunch for bugger all cost and time - and not just going straight for "convenience food".

But yes, we shall catch-up by phone or something.

Well this is sobering. Especially when I checked it against the lifetime of my two year old son.

On the longest day of the year me and a bunch of mates tried to ride from Hanmer Springs to Nelson. We didn't quite make it - here's our story - and here's our route: http://app.strava.com/activities/101173087

Cute or disturbing? How about we use the word cuteturbing to describe both?

Yes, Snoopybabe is cuteturbing.
