"Wow; good on them to crowdfund the initial research. (also a little sad, isn't it?) The benefits for the project and the appeal is certainly there and taking out the vicious gradients will open it up to many more riders; best wishes it will…"

"I've ridden Bombala > Queanbeyan on a road tour over 10 years ago, and at that time I lamented the dead railway line that would have flattened out the many ups and downs if it had been a rail trail. I camped at Bombala, Nimmitabel, Cooma,…"

208km Monaro Rail Trail

208km Monaro Rail TrailSpotted the disused Monaro railway line while returning home to Sydney after riding the Thredbo Enduro downhills and TVT mtb trail for New Years.Riding a long distance rail trail, as opposed to using a car to get to the Snowies is something I would love to try.Apart from all the positive spin-offs for struggling regional towns, a shuttle service for bikes would be a must-have; so local and…See More

About Me:
Born and raised in Rhodesia, lived through the 'liberation struggle' and 'transformation' of Rhodesia into Zimbabwe. Went to Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town. Worked in advertising up in Johannesburg and survived commuting on my bike in Jo'berg traffic. Founding member of Johannesburg MTB Club where I met the love of my life. Raced XC at national & provincial level. Established and edited RIDE Magazine, and co-authored 4 books on MTB in RSA. After baby nr. 3, we decided that the 'transformation' of South Africa shared too many ominous similarities with that of Zimbabwe and there wasn't going to be a pot of gold for us or our kids at the end of the Rainbow Nation...thus we embarked upon the very difficult (and expensive) decision in 2004 to wipe out our entire identity and network in one flight far, far south to Sydney. Becoming more thickly settled as each year passes, although I do sometimes miss the wild freedom of chaos and the lack of stifling regulation, that is life in Africa...

Hills Shire Council Bike Paths Network

Hills Council compiled a comprehensive plan for road cycling in 2009. In 2018, they continue to deliver on it. With major developments like North Kellyville along Cattai Creek, thousands of new homes are being built throughout the Hills. Residents and businesses need alternative, efficient transport options to events, shopping centres, schools, work and transit hubs. It's time to ride there, folks!…

It is a privilege to experience the historic Convict Trail on a bicycle. The range of distances and terrain that a mountain bicycle can cover extremely efficiently, means that you get to see much more of this fascinating trail than you would on foot.

Wisemans Ferry is easily accessible from any suburb North West of Galston Gorge- eit…


Europe Sojourn: the PARIS bicycling bits...

Regaled by negative stories of Paris Metro mayhem, and anxious about language barriers, I looked into using bicycles to get us around...


On our very first night there,…


HA! I got 'Letter of the week' for my 'Metre Matters' missive.

Hello Susanne

You can find out about Wollongong cycleway here

The ride north along the beaches is nice provided the wind isn't howling like it has been the past week.
