And today she begins another adventure, a solo bike tour up the East Coast of Australia. Colin and I will be the support crew for the first few days, mostly for our own benefit! Her type 1 diabetes makes everything that bit more complicated and challenging.
We are enormously proud of her and enormously worried for her; typical parents thinking of all the things that could go wrong. Her bike is now sporting some new safety equipment and her head a new helmet.
She has courage and determination, is curious and insightful, has the ability to live in and enjoy the moment, is attuned to all her senses, is adaptive and creative, loving and kind. She takes a chance, gives it a go and takes things as they come. She is deep and lives life fully.
And so it begins...

|Her bike, the day before departure. It won't look so bare and unladen for a very long time.|
