Dreaming again

So I am chilling out near Canberra tonight and dreaming of rides I could be doing.  I won’t be doing these rides in the immediate future, but I can dream!

1) Iceland…

I admit this isn’t a particularly detailed idea, but the map appears to outline hundreds of kilometres of riding which one could do with options for highlands, fjordlands and large sections of the maps listed as “Loose sand possibly causing difficulties in biking”. Who wouldn’t be inspired.

2)  Remote Australian Cycle Tours

I have a lot of respect for people who commit to serious cycle touring, and Alia and Simon appear to have committed to scouting two massive new cycle routes in Australia. The proposed routes through Central Australia and along the Great Dividing Range are epic and should be awesome once they are developed!

Kimberleys Day One

Last week I spent the week in the Kimberleys for work. For those of you who don’t know the Kimberleys are the far north western corner of Australia right up where the crocodiles are. I didn’t see any salt water crocs, but I have seen a few freshwater crocodiles this week. Unfortunately photos are hard to get out of a car travelling at 110km/h so the I don’t have proof.

Anyway todays selection of photos are from an area 60km east of Fitroy Crossing where I was doing some work.
