Message from Dave: On my days off I still just love going out and having a nice cruisy trail ride on my mountain bike. It helps me realise how lucky we are to have such a great country and that Nelson is one of the better parts of it and the simple pleasures we get from a great ride are the best.
"Just ride ya bike and enjoy. Sweet as"
