tri state bike epic – final.

we left thredbo today – it was pretty emotional to think after all the fun we had on the trails our bikes will be gathering dust (and by that i mean not the good dust) for the next year. that said we got one more riding opportunity coming up: a freeride clinic at green valleys.…

nat’s favourite trails.

over the last few months my dad and i have been exploring a few trails, some closer to home, others pretty far away. below is my list of personal favourites. i’ll keep expanding the list as i explore more and more trails.

tri state bike epic – nsw.

we have made it to the last stage of our mountain bike journey: thredbo. initially we came here in winter and nat actually learned to ski here but in recent years we have visited thredbo in summer, too, and enjoyed the alpine trails. day 1. it is hard to beat the kind of descent you…

tri state bike epic – transit.

we had to say goodbye to bright, mostly because the caravan park could not accommodate us any longer. strange because it seemed to us that on the same day half the park was pulling up stumps. anyway, with all the biking we’d done over the last few days we probably needed a break and the…

tri state bike epic – victoria.

our next stop was bright in the victorian alps. bright is in many ways completely unlike thredbo. while thredbo is basically the result of someone dropping one big hotel subdivided into smaller buildings on a mountain side to make it look like an actual settlement bright is a real village that happens to accommodate guests.…

tri state bike epic – act.

we decided that we would not take the bikes with us on our long trip around australia. there would not be many opportunities to really ride them as they were meant to be ridden. we would have at least 2 (kris threatens she would not be shuttle mum if we didn’t ride with her on…

air.

let me apologise at this point. i know the blog is meant to be about our travels and to this point it probably looks like the biography of a deranged mechanic. i assure you we will travel and there will be less to write about the car (i really hope that will be the case).…

this is it.

we have moved out. so this is it, there is no way back. the house is going to be looked after by our friends who in turn are moving all their stuff in as we speak. to be honest – and give credit where it is due – kris did most of the work. during…

toughen up princess 3.

almost there! previously our little snowflake got a snokel and a bull (or roo) bar. but if you know me you will appreciate that i just can’t leave things half done. after all we will be travelling all the way around the country and as countries go australia is a rather big one with some…

merry xmas.
