Style inspiration: Always liked 60s and 80s riders. Lots of colour and slick outfits.

Best local ride: Anywhere through Naarm (Melbourne, Australia). I love riding through the city and beyond.

Why do you like riding? The freedom, the thrill, the feeling you experience. It’s also the ability to not be contactable, just me on the bike enjoying it all.
