One of the most rewarding ways to travel

Whilst completing a B.E. and Ph.D. (Mechanical Engineering) Jordan Gilmore, Lecturer for the Bicycle Mechanics programmes, developed an appreciation for “what can be achieved using a mechanically simplistic but incredibly functional machine”.

Jordan enjoys the bicycles low impact applicability to transport, recreation, sport, and tourism/adventure. He has ridden in many parts of the world, serves on the local road cycling club committee, and races competitively, including at the Tour of Southland.

Jordan speaks highly of the uniqueness bicycles bring to a tourism experience. “Bicycles are one of the most rewarding ways to travel. The world passes at an ideal pace; fast enough to travel efficiently, yet slow enough to immerse yourself along the way”.
