Well today I got up early. I mean I was up at 7 and was riding by 8:30. For anyone who knows me this is the moment to be suitably impressed! The first part of the day was highly uneventful. The strong winds over night had died down and it was a pleasant ride down to Vivonne Bay where I stopped to get any supplies I could find and some […]

What an awesome day! I woke up in splendid isolation at Murrays Lagoon to sunrise to the sound of birds and not much else. After fumbling around for a while I set out towards Seal Bay, with the aim of getting to Vivonne Bay for the evening. 6km of dirt and and a short section of sealed roads, and I made it to Seal Bay Cafe at 11am.

Tired! Tell me if I am wrong, but day 3 of a cycle tour always seems to be the hardest day of a ride.

What island has a really unoriginal name, is really easy to get too, and is absolutely amazing?

Detailled posts will be forthcoming, but for now let me say that kangaroo island is awesome, I highly recommend it to anyone, and next […]
I haven’t put up an update on the trip because it has been rather busy and reception free, but I’m chilling this afternoon in Kingscote so here is a pvot fron the beach. Three more part days of riding and I will be back in the big smoke for a while. Can’t say I’m particularly looking forward to it!
I’m in (R)Adelaide ready for another cycling adventure to start tomorrow. As usual I don’t really have a plan except that I will start by riding south towards Kangaroo Island, and that I will work it out from there. What I do have however is a heavily laden bike and a sense of adventure. These things have seen me through a lot so here is to adventures ahead.
