B is for Bikes.
My bikes are important to me as I'm passionate about cycling and I'm really proud to have passed on a love of cycling to my boys.
I have to admit to not being sure how this happened but between the three of us we have six bikes, a trail-a-bike, a few frames and a mountain of spare parts lying around the place. I guess we ought to think about sorting it out and getting rid of a few bits but if truth be told we won't and the collection will just increase.
One of the things I love most about cycling is being able to push myself to complete challenges that I never believed I would be able to. The biggest and best (so far) has to be the 2009 ABSA Cape Epic. From start to finish the whole thing is truly epic and a lot of fun. Maybe one day I'll get to do it again but for now I'm very proud of having ridden it and finished in the top half!
