Waking up in Inverell it was -2 degrees! I quickly jumped in the shower and waited half an hour for the water to warm up. It took another half an hour to thaw me out from such a cold night! Now all warm again, I jumped back in my thermals and got my heated vest cranked up. Loading... more

I wasn't far back inland but boy it was a chilly morning as compared to the coast. It was also great to be inland again simply because riding country roads are better than coast roads. When making my ride plan this morning I noticed a town called Texas, that I had no idea existed so I decided... more

Waking up in Bundaberg I was happy to see another sunny day. I really couldn't believe how perfect the weather has been since the first day. While packing the bike I was thinking about the route to take as it was the last working day before school holidays so I was expecting traffic around... more

It felt weird waking up near the coast again after being so far inland, but hey, I was appreciating the warmth. After waking up I had a quick tub and headed out onto the balcony to take a look at the plan for the day. I had a tip from Dad to stop in at Agnes Water and 1770, which were right on... more

Feeling refreshed after a good pub rest it was time to get up and embark on a 900km run to Longreach. Jumping out of bed at 6am I looked outside and saw the sun rising to blue sky! After a quick shower I soon had the bike packed and was heading out of town. The temp was around 5 degrees so a little chilly but nothing too bad.

Waking up to an overcast morning I thought to myself, I'm not wearing wet weather gear as the sun is going to shine! With that good sentiment I rode out of my driveway and started heading for my first stop, being Tamworth. Much to my disappointment I ran into rain about half an hour from home, so on with the wet weather gear it was.... more

Living in Newcastle there's nothing better than an easy run to Gloucester for lunch, especially when things are cooling down! Waking up the morning of the run it was about 11 degrees so not cold but just starting to creep down. Looking outside the sun was up so I knew it was going to be a great little ride.

Man I'd been looking forward to this ride since it was first booked in our ride calendar. Nothing better than a good ride with a bunch of great people and a country pub stay. Well, at least in my opinion!
Waking up Saturday morning seeing the clear sky made me smile ear to ear. I tucked into a little... more

This ride was even a mystery to me until Chewy shot me an email with a proposed route that looked pretty damn awesome. I really wasn't up to leading the group with all the rubbish that has gone on in my personal life in the last few weeks but sure as hell I was keen for a ride to clear my head and try get things back on track again.... more
