a weblog of my veggie powered cycling adventures



Critical Mass, Market St, Sydney CBD
Kentlyn, Otford to Wollongong

I have tentative plans to do a 7 or so day ride starting at the Six Foot Track in the Blue Mountains (NSW, Australia) and heading South towards Wombeyan Caves. From there I will likely ride south-east towards Mittagong, and possibly head north from there.

Dharawal State Conservation area, adjacent to Darkes Forest Road
Climate camp ride — Helensburgh via Dharawal

I decided to ride my bike to the 2nd annual climate camp in Australia. It was held in Helensburgh, midway between Sydney and Wollongong (NSW, Australia). I had not been out for any decent ride in a while, nor had I been camping of late.

Birch Fall Classic — working hard in the early stages
Birch Fall Classic

The Birch Fall Classic was the first mountain biking event (aside from many Critical Mass rides) I have participated in. Whilst I was coming off long days touring with a loaded trailer, I did not envisage having 8 hours of trail riding in me so I asked the organisers to pair me with another rider.
