Breaking Chains and Not Burning Rubber

BREAKING CHAINS - Freedom: Cycle touring is the greatest way I have found to experience freedom. Whilst I celebrate mine I hope to help others gain and realise theirs, and protect ours, by fundraising for Amnesty International

NOT BURNING RUBBER - Environmental Awareness: Cycling is one of the most efficient and sustainable modes of transport. It's slow speed allows you to become more aware and connected with our surroundings, and therefore the pressures that they may be under. I intent to have a minimal negative impact on the environment whilst I travel, and will share my observations and experiences about my journey, environmental issues, and sustainable living here:

Racked up!

Whilst getting pretty merry at my Leaving party on Friday a few fellas came up with a few modification suggestions for the bike....
"Muffy" volunteered to beef up the front rack using my old steel rear rack. So after spending Saturday laying myself fallow, I headed over to the Truck garage where he works and he got stuck into it..... Cheers mate!

I am sure the extra storage space will come in handy at some point on my trek, plus it enables me to support the handlebar bag, which inevitably becomes overloaded with quick-snacks, toys, and general tack. It is also removable.
No.8 wire eat your heart out!!! (Non-Kiwis won't understand)
