A gift from my home. Thanks Jorg.
Tom’s new custom Troll. Full fit out, front to rear. He’s off to Ecuador on Monday. Bit jealous. #surly #rohloffspeedhub
Thanks very much,
The touring site is slipping down the front page ... that will not do.
The Murrumbidgee River flood plain three weeks ago at Eunony Lagoon ... http://wildwassa.deviantart.com/#/d4rom5n
Three days ago near the same spot, or as close as I could get to the same spot ... http://wildwassa.deviantart.com/#/d4sn6f7
Hi Touring enthusiasts,
Tout Terrain Touring bikes are now available in Australia.
I think they were before. The Flying Furniture guy in Canberra had them if I recall correctly. Seems to be recently changed. They are very well thought through and made touring bikes at the "expedition"end of the spectrum.
Do you know who Ben Head was?
I always have a theme for my cycle tours, it makes them more interesting for me. This time I will pretend to be a Ben Head like explorer, totally penniless.
I'm going to cycle from the NW of the ACT, across the Brindies, around The Rock, then beside the Murray and Murrumbidgee, through the SW Slopes of NSW linking to the Hume and Hovell (original exploration od 1824-25 route) at Lankey's Creek, coming back through the Bogong Peaks and the Northern Brindies, back to home. Travelling without a cent or a credit card in my pocket. Totally self contained, living of the land and from rivers, often on theTravelling Stock Routes.
That's my interpretation of doing a Ben Head type level of exploration ... and only riding on dirt no tarmac if possible, apart from crossing roads at times.
I've done a few reccies west of the Brindies. It is good country out on the flood plains ... http://s225.photobucket.com/albums/dd301/WildWassa/
I'll be back in a few months time.
Hi Warren. That sounds like a great adventure. And your photos are exquisite - they awaken an immediate yearning to be out in the back country.
Over the last two weeks I did two short tours.
The first was out on the flatlands in the Riverena on a few of the Traveling Stock Routes ... http://www.bicycles.net.au/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=57640
The second short tour was to replace images when I lost a camera card during a tour that I did earlier this year ... http://www.bicycles.net.au/forums/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=49591
Well an opportunity window has just opened up to do my first bicycle tour. It has to be within the next three weeks. So I was thinking taking the train to MacArthur or even Mittagong and then ride first southwest for a day and then backtrack and go via Robertson to Shellharbour & Wollongong and take the train back. Total budget 3-4 days.
For a first timer for touring is that too much?
I have touring experience in sea kayaks, so not a complete novice, but still interested in feedback.
