142What inspired me to even consider making my already sometimes-grueling field schedule even more so, by doing it all by bike you ask?  A few different things come to  mind:   A friend undertook to ride 300+ kilometres from cairns to cooktown to raise money for heart disease research…  My cousin went off to the sahara to be the first to cross that vast expanse of desert by wind power alone: in a kite buggy (!).  I also found the website of the adventurous and ethical souls at http://carbonneutralexpeditions.com/ .  These, coupled with my growing sense that most of the barriers that we encounter in life are those that we make for ourselves, in our own mind.  Once you begin to realise that, you get curious about where the real limits lie…
