You know those experiences that can jolt you out of your everyday: seeing an incredible piece of art, eating an exceptional meal, having a challenging conversation.

Father of Hunter (pictured with Nic below) and with another baby on the way, Nic also finds time to help out at RAD Bikes where he assists with ‘recycling a dunger’; getting people moving on their bikes.
