Eat Pray Love… or something along those lines.

After staying in far North Queensland for way too long the best plan of attack was to get back to Brisbane before my ship sailed. But having cycled up the whole way I decided a different form of transport was to be taken back down. Part of the way anyway. This is where Adrian came…

No Particular Reason

And when I got there, I figured, since I’ve gone this far, I might as well turn right around, just keep on going… -Forest Gump-  I only made it 200km down from the Tip of Cape York when Rick passed me and asked if I needed a lift. I didn’t need one. But I didn’t mind…

About Traffic and Termites

Where my road met the Peninsula developmental Road the track became a little less funny. I found that a lot of people heading North on this large and long dirt track ride with a ‘highway mentality“, as I call it. It means people are in a hurry to get somewhere, the top of Australia in…

Not that I’m counting… The last 2000km I’ve been cycling with Stuart and…

When animals attack

Stuart got out of hospital after 5 days. He wasn’t quiet ready to leave and the doctor had forbidden him to start riding immediately. So we waited a day. The very surprising diagnosis was swine flu! Even though we haven’t once spotted a swine along the way. We did however spot a few flies. Stu is…
