SPRING RIDE (with a touch of dirt)

OCTOBER RIDE: 43km ST. ALBAN’S LOOP Every now and then, I yearn for adventure. Indulging that impulse, I decided to investigate rumours that similar souls have cycled up and down the MacDonald River from Wisemans Ferry, via St. Albans... on a road bike! I have ridden the hills and valleys of this pristine and remote riverine…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...

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!…

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

Posted on May 20, 2018 at 5:30pm 7 Comments

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…

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.
