Cycling Tour Of New Zealand – 17 November 1998


17 November 1998, Spencer Street Station, Melbourne

These photos were taken on the way to Melbourne airport. I flew to New Zealand for a cycling tour of the northern tip of the North Island. Whilst there, I also visited multiple relatives.

I was already beginning to feel some of the effects of the neurological condition Myalgic Encephalomyelitis from which I suffer. Tiring easily, headaches and muscle pain, are some of the symptoms. The problems were mild at this time, so I was still able to carry on a normal life.

    My cycles all have motors. You are a stud-ette.


    • No bicycle Mike? They are great for stealing into forbidden areas to get special photos! Re Stud-ette, I see myself more as a Dude-ette, actually. 🙂

        I had a bicycle. A nice 27 speed that I sold a few years ago when I realized I never wanted to ride it again.
        Dude-ette it is, dude.

    you’re a beauty, katherine – love the last photo, looking determined and tough :).


    • Thanks Lisa. I think I am a bit tough. I need to be coping with this stupid illness.
