Well I’m Pete
I grew up in Northland close to Wellsford in and around Wharehine/Port Albert area cycling the gravel roads, But now have lived in Taupo for over the last 10+ years.
I started riding on gravel around about 1972, commuting to work on gravel roads in 1980, got my 1st mountain bike in about 1985, build my 1st custom gravel adventure bike in 1988/9 and have been riding gravel and dirt ever since in NZ, Europe, UK, Scandinavia and Africa.
I still believe riding gravel is the most fun on two wheels.
I look forward to seeing you out on the dirt/gravel roads.
Thanks Gravel Pete (Peter Goodman)
