Some reasons why I like the Himalayas

Its back to Ladakh and these are some of my reasons…

the landscapes

the prayer flags

the people: Ladakhis, Lahualis, Spitians, Tibetans

the sublime cycling opportunities

the sustainable livelihood practices
the dogs
the villages
the high altitude flowers
the colours (and the monastries)
the donkeys
the momos
the monks things
the Buddhist way and the openness
and I like to ride my bike

Pedaling has been natural to me since the tender age of three. Cycling is practical, fun, it gets you to the corner café, across countries, continents, keeps you fit and is by far the most efficient and environmentally friendly transport option around, being virtually carbon neutral.

I live in Howick, KwaZulu-Natal which is great cycling country, within 10 minutes I can be bouncing along some of the finest single tracks in the province.
