Bio: I am Werner and was born many years ago in Switzerland. After I finished my school years I've done an apprenticeship as a Boilermaker for 4 years.Then was time to do my training in the army. In the beginning of 1980 I decided to go on a Holiday to New Zealand. Fell in love with the place and decided to stay. While on Holiday I met Jenny and fell in love with her too. We got married at the end of Dec. 82


I am Jenny and I was born in New Zealand. Meeting Werner in 1980 was life changing for me .His love for photography and sight seeing made a full life of travel, walking and camping. We have 3 sons in total. And are blessed with 2 beautiful Grand children. My biking started about same time as Werner but only a fraction of the kilometres. We have always enjoyed doing things together so buying the tandem has worked out really wonderful.


In Dec 1996 we came here to Perth for a Holiday and visit Allan our oldest son from Jenny's first marriage. He moved here in about 1994. We were very impressed with Perth.We went back to NZ and decided to sell the House and move to Perth. By end of April we where on the way back to Perth for good. About 5 1/2 years ago I started Cycling again after I decided to stop smoking.I have done a couple of tours with BV. The first from Albany-Augusta- Perth. Then last year we went to Tasmania and did Launceston- St. Hellens-Hobart. Till Oct last year all the riding was done on MTB and the Road bike. The last 3 years I cycled an average of above 10 000 km a year. We bought a Tandem in Oct. and it's a Cannondale MT 1000. We should have done that years ago as we enjoy riding the Tandem
