Mountain Bike Night Racing

Over the past month or so, I have been going to the You Yangs on a Friday night to do some Mountain Bike Racing. I feel that I just wrote that as a confessional! It’s actually been heaps of fun. Michael’s coach Jess suggested to Michael a while ago that I should go along and […]

Bike Packing – not for the faint hearted!

Last weekend, Michael and I packed up our clothes into some bags, strapped them to our bikes and jumped on the train to Ballarat with the plan to ride to Bendigo along the Gold Fields Trail.
