"To think I rode a Honda 250  on the track, more of a road back then, from up near the Wollombi Rd to 10 mile hollow and on to Wisemans Ferry back in about 1970 and there were very few rock ledges or  washaways. It was a long ride and a…"

"Looks like a great ride Susanna, I have to admit that mountain biking is not one of my skills and even a bit of gravel makes me uncomfortable, I started bicycling late and the slipping and sliding etc that comes naturally to younger dirt riders…"

THE CONVICT TRAILS ROCK ! (and Roll...)

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- either via Old Northern Road, or the slow, narrow and winding River Road from Sackville which hugs the course of the Hawkesbury River. Either route is a lovely drive.On…See More

"Ditto. News like this just makes me want to leave Sydney and the 'no fun allowed' backward and downright destructive mindset of many of those with power over us in this city. But, the point of sharing my article was to illustrate that at…"

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...

AIRBRUSHED PHOENIX BIKE

Posted on March 11, 2015 at 7:30am 3 Comments

The coolest kind of artwork, is one that can take you places... I'm extremely chuffed with how my latest custom airbrushed Phoenix bike turned out. Now I'm sharing the ride-with you!

This is a my piece of Functional Art. For a change, I have custom airbrushed a new, plain black carbon fibre hardtail mtb frame for myself. My left-brained husband built it up for me from all the…

Hello Susanne

You can find out about Wollongong cycleway here
http://www.wollongong.nsw.gov.au/facilities/sportrec/Pages/cycleways.aspx

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