Cycle strongman

ImageThe cycling Strongman, Chris Roach, delivered a talk about his cycling tour, which took him from Newcastle to Northern Europe, in a life-changing, four-year adventure, last night in Hamilton. I have always loved travel stories, they are a way to experience vicariously the adventures of others and an evening of such escapism is high on my list of defining a great night out. Chris Roach delivers this in abundance in his talk accompanied by photos, a short video, and maps which trace his trip, the people he met along the trek, and the experience of doing it all by bike. Through tough terrain at times and all the adversities that are encountered in third world countries. A must see-and-hear for anyone who who is thinking of doing a long bike tour or who, like me, is content with hearing others’ tales. He is presenting again tonight at 150 Beaumont St Hamilton at 7pm, donations to Oxfam Australia are the only entry fee and there is food and coffee shop services available at the venue, the Commons Cafe.
