QOM AMBASSADOR - MISS SEETO
Posted on July 01 2017
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS FOR 2017?
rubber side down!! aside from that i have a big, personal (non-cycling shock horror) project i am working on.. but shhhh it's a secret.
WHEN DID YOUR CYCLING JOURNEY START?
in early 2013 when public transport fares where getting ridiculous and i had this crazy idea i could ride my bike to work to save money. so i had my parents bring over my 13 year old mountain bike from my teenage years. somewhere in the vacinity 15kgs and no suspension.. yep i dusted it off and rode it 15kms from Mansfield to the city! it took me over an hour (for comparison i now have a 17km commute & it takes me 45 minutes).
WHAT SET OF WHEELS DO YOU HAVE?
one of a kind. a 2014 Merida Scultura CF Juliet - however she has one mighty fine custom paint job which means she is fluoro pink!!
WHERE'S YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE TO RIDE?
mt. gravatt mountain.. yeah i like climbing it (multiple times) don't ask me why.
ON AVERAGE HOW MANY KMS DO YOU RIDE A WEEK?
anywhere between 100-150km. depending on public holidays, days off work and how many times i lap that mountain.
WHAT CAN'T YOU LIVE WITHOUT?
all the warm things. i get cold easy.. so baselayers, toe covers & windvests are essential accessories to my QOM kits(can't live without those either).
WHAT'S YOUR ADVICE FOR SOMEONE WHO IS JUST STARTING OUT ON THEIR CYCLING JOURNEY?
no one cares what you look like(ie. you don't have to join the 'lycra brigade' unless you want to) wear what you're comfortable in and go explore on two wheels.
PS. you can do it. keep on SPINNING!!
