Gary left the UK February 2015 and is half way on his quest to circumnavigate the globe by bicycle: http://www.gearsweneveruse.com
He hasn't had a haircut or shave since he left home! (I found that out on his web site.)
I met Gary as he was leaving the northern end of Upper Hutt bound for Auckland.
Always a huge honour to stop and chat to Round the World Cyclists as I am in awe of their amazing achievements.
And an honour to add Gary to my "People I have meet while out cycling" album - it is starting to look quite good I reckon.
