A bit of a mission
We are on a mission to develop the Gold Coast into the number ONE ‘Go To’ cycling destination in all the lands of OZ. . . Hmmm no small goals around here, but its already happening, the Gold Coast has absolutely all the ingredients and the cyclists know it. Like any good goal and ride, its a team thingy, so we can use all the badass cycling brains, brawn, creativity and determination that we Gold Coast Cycling Villagers can muster.

About Steve beyond the bike
Crumpled and paralysed on the side of the road from a broken neck during a cycling Event in 2012 was tragic . . . but wait there’s more! – “Terminal Cancer” – Life does not move in a straight line – is that a problem?
Life in the ‘Terminal Lane’
‘Cholangio the Beast,’ Cancers Champion Programmed Death Warrior, who leaves no survivors in its wake, made my broken neck look like child’s play!
Nearly 25 hours of surgeries, months of intensive chemo and now immunotherapy, I have recently gained the upper hand over a statically unsurvivable Cancer.
A Pancreatic / Liver Combo with no cure and no survivors
Living life in the Terminal Lane has taught me much, especially to “Live Lite – Eat Lite – Move Lite & Play Lite” ! Everyday I run, cycle, Swim in the surf, and let out the real smiles. I am no longer the loneliest person in a crowed room and absolutely love the feeling of being normal, it’s so simple but it’s the best thing ever!
Read my story @ https://steveholmes.net.au
I understood that I could not waste precious energy trying to go back to the way it was, my energy was more effective in learning to travel alongside this beast of a cancer. Cancer could not remain my a foe, but instead a new partner on a new pathway with new sunrises. I could not risk a head on confrontation against a foe I did not know or understand.
Thoughts are Things and ‘Things’ evolve to find their tangible form.
“There is an ‘Art’ to living and there is a greater ‘Art’ to staying alive, yet the ‘Art’ of all ‘Arts’ is to live a full and complete life that exceeds your conscious potential, but never quite hits perfection, as that is the inspiration for tomorrows sunrise!
Pursuing Perfection confronts potential, opens up honestly, and delivers opportunities – It maintains a healthy direction. It can be scary, liberating and overwhelming, all at the same time.
An irony of life is that the pursuit of perfection exposes the intangible for what it really is, “a new tangible – a new power, just waiting to be acknowledged. This realisation came to me from deep within, as I struggled to reach out not just for survival, but beyond that. I discovered an unconditional willingness at my centre when all else seemed lost it lifted me up, transcending beyond limitations of the crowd” Survival is a crowed centre – Living has space and freedom for the pursuit of the intangible.”
I write for me.
Writing helps me get over myself and to deal with the serious stuff. Writing it out of my head gives me a strong sense of control, it lets in powerful streams of sunshine that warm and inspire, lifting me above and beyond todays realities. There is nothing better, than a mind filled with aspirations.
I share my thoughts and journeys in the hope that it will somehow lift others back up to solid ground and beyond, to reach and touch their potentials and share their successes with those who follow.
There you have it – an insight in to my thinking style !
