Koh Samui (Thailand) for a week

We are officially on our way to the UK!!!

Cotter Micro-Adventure

On Friday night I rode out to the Cotter for a night in my bivvy bag, and then rode back through to Canberra the long way. It was an excellent little micro-adventure and well worth the crazy rush trying pack up on Thursday night. Can’t think of anything else to say really, so enjoy a photo or ten.
