I would love to celebrate my 50th by leaping onto my very own electric mountain bike so I can zoom around the Tassie trails with Simon, Ruby and our MTB friends.
It seems a little odd to ask you to contribute money as a gift - perhaps in the past I would have just let you know my favourite Tassie gin or wine or bookshop and cross my fingers.
It has been a super strange year to try and save money for such a shiny, new adventure toy, particularly with the tourism sector in which I work being all but shut down. So, if you feel inclined, please contribute, every little bit counts.
Please know that I would be just as happy with your company at my party or a nice quiet chat over a coffee as I would with a contribution to a mountain bike.
If it all works out, I invite any of you who (fits a small bike and) would like to borrow this eMTB to go and play on the trails 'round Hobart. I was surprised to discover how variable commercial ebike hire rates are - for the weekend it ranges from $139 (Hobart) to $260 (regional Victoria) or an impressive $310 (Derby).
Thanks for reading and contemplating contributing to this gift.
