BVRT 70 – The “Just Right” Dirt Ride – Unfinished Business
For those who have not done this ride, its fairly easy with a couple of creek crossings to negotiate. Many including myself walk these crossings. The track is good and described as “easy”. There is a gentle climb up Mt Hallen and an equally gentle descent. Its a nice ride for sure with just the […]

Newcastle Overnight
The weather gods really were looking down on us as I joined ~160 fellow riders on the Newcastle Overnight ride. The day had been wet and I was preparing for a soggy 170km up to Newcastle. But those fears were unfounded. We ended up with perfect conditions – little wind, comfortable temps and zero rain.

211 WELLINGTON FLYER
The “211 Wellington Flyer” had a good turnout of 16 upbeat riders, who departed to the drizzle of the Adelaide Hills. Whilst not forecasted, the 300m altitude drop beyond the Wistow cafe stop, dropped us below the moist clouds to dry roads with moderate winds. At one point I thought I had headstem problems but […]

5 BPs in 5 regions and a bucket list tick
What do you do when you have an urgent family issue that is 2000km away and your non-riding significant other is unable to fly due to recent medical procedures? Obviously, the answer is drive. We had a week or so of getting the thumbs up from the medics for the road travel so I prepared […]

Big Buckley’s 300
After following the buzz of those audacious Aussies in the lead up to this year’s PBP, I figured that if I was ever going to emulate this sort of amazingly absurd feat then I better start riding beyond my standard 100 to 200k comfort zone. What better way to be brave than to do it […]

FNQ Mossman Sugar Town Tour
Sean and Mary and their volunteers put on a great ride in Mossman, offering three distances from 70ish to 150ish km.  Or thereabouts, maybe.  As Sean said, the distances were in Irish kilometres, so anything was possible.   Thanks to Jimmy for his ride video – heaps of smiling faces, palm trees and sugar cane !!!

90 riders descended on Dimbulah on Sunday on 2 April 2023 to tackle the 55km Dimbulah Loop.  Our fabulous volunteers, Kim, Mundi and Jenny were waiting in the darkness with brevet cards ready for the hoards of cyclists that suddenly took over the normally quiet township. The ride headed along the quiet back roads of […]
