Where in Sydney do you live ?
Wollongong (hope that's near enough)
Tell us about your bikes
Giant OCR roadie
Diamond Back Ascent MTB with slicks and rack.
About Me:
Moderately committed rider for the most part. I do commute on the roadie once or twice a week (no gear to carry, and the roads/traffic are such that you can do that in Wollongong).

I joined up here as I had the brainwave of doing a bike tour from Lithgow to Dubbo. Setting off in a month or so.
Have done one bike tour previously (~10 yrs ago) in Tassie (east coast).
Update: Lithgow to Dubbo is now done. Its a hard slog at the start, but the last bit was glorious. Particularly through Yeoval. End of update.

Used to get about the mountain trails a bit around the gong, but the MTB has the slicks on permanently now and hasn't seen mud for many moons.
