Simpsons Gap Dinner
Tonight I decided it would be a good idea to ride out to Simpsons Gap after work and heat up dinner while watching the sunrise. I often have ideas like this but rarely follow through due to my annoying sense of something. Luckily the warm sunshine, mild breeze and beautiful sky convinced me that it would be worth the effort of packing up a stove and some leftover lasagna on […]
Photos from Broome
So at the moment I am in Broome for work and I thought I would take a few photos of the area while I am here.
Three Flats and an Amazing Sunset
Yesterday evening I had the pleasure of going for a ride after work with the local mountain bike club. The group meets at 5 and then heads out for a 1hr loop with fast, intermediate and slow groups splitting off to do an appropriate ride. The ride didn’t start particularly well as I was running late due to problems assembling my back tyre after my puncture on the weekend (which […]
Alice Springs Sunset
These gorgeous photos of sunset, clouds and beautiful skies were taken on my ride home from work this afternoon. The amazing contrast between the sky, clouds and red mountains made me stop in my path and it was only after a few minutes that I actually thought to take a photograph.

The riding was generally smooth with early […]
My first Alice Springs Clouds

Brisbane to Alice Springs
As many of you know I recently decided to move to Alice Springs in central Australia. I’ll be starting a new job next week, but for the moment I’m still enjoying free time. To get to Alice is a fair trek and over the past week Clare and I drove more than 3,600km and used something like 380 litres of fuel. The route is pretty varied with some long 600+ […]
Stradbroke Island Cycling
On Sunday we braved the early morning cold and got up at 6am for an adventure out to North Stradbroke Island, the largest of the many islands which form the barrier between Moreton Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The crisp morning air demanded jumpers to be worn with our shorts so it was hard to raise the motivation to throw our bikes in the car, rummage through the cupboards for […]
