Grace and I met in the Dolomites as walking hosts for an English holiday company. I reignited a love of cycling and Grace fell in love - with a Pinarello, not me. A friendship blossomed and Grace disappeared to Oz for a year. During my plans to chase her half way round the world, Grace suggested cycling Sydney to Cairns and I immediately knew I loved the idea. I proceeded to spend the next six months planning.
