Life in the slow lane

If you take a good look around many Sydney neighbourhoods, and I mean a keen-eyed look, not a once-over as you go about your business look, you may notice a new breed of bike rider. They are not dressed in lycra, there are no toe clips and if you mentioned the words "mountain bike" you would be dismissed instantly.

The Daily Telegraph
An unbreakable spirit

JOSH Clift believes challenges are put in front of people who can overcome them. His is no minor challenge: The 28-year-old must learn to walk again. Clift’s story is extraordinary. Two serious but completely separate accidents in 2008 have left him an incomplete quadriplegic.

Kangaroo Valley

So when we head out of Sydney on the M5 bound for a weekend in Kangaroo Valley, which is located two hours south of Sydney in the Southern Highlands, expectations are high.

Mobile generation

THEY are the workers who refuse to be pigeonholed, dismiss the work ethic of older generations, yet think nothing of working seven days a week. Gen Y is the mobile generation – they are always considering their options yet cannot fathom having the same career for their entire working life.
