Default 2015_Stairway to Heaven (Bananarama)

Late March ....and after a break of a good number of years it was back to another BananaRama, shipping the bikes to Brisbane and flying after them to save the time and "commute", using the full fortnight instead for a 4500km planned route criss-crossing the Great Divide on dirt, gravel and as much single-lane asphalt as available.

And a cracker of a start we had...

The steep, loose gravel of Mt. Mee N.P.





turning into some massive tropical depression lasting a few days





Some sweet twisties up the Bellthorpe Range, the Postmans Track, ObiObi Rd. and more...






A day in the sand on Fraser Island














...the climb across the Bunya Mountains....



















...before it all came to an abrupt end when disaster struck.

Default 2015_ Bayles

Not that much ever happens at Bayles....

...but once a year, on the first Sunday in May,



the bikes come to town.

Default When Winter Comes Knocking...

Mid-May, one of the first crunchy, frosty mornings with the trees in autumn-colours....and still not quite up to climbing back onto a bike after the Queensland-fiasco.


So it's a photo-tootle-by-cage only. And, as always, checking out a few new future bike roads, tracks and other interesting bits.

Default 2015_A Frosty Day To Longwood

Late May.
The OpenRoaders had invited to Sunday-lunch at Longwood.
And that means crossing the Strathbogies.....back AND forth, HOORAY!!

Being one of my favourite local riding spots, the bikes just had to come out despite a
biting, frosty morning and some thick fog all the way into the foothills.





















Great day...and finally back in the saddle. :-)

Default 2015_ Mt. Dandy Steeps

Late May.
Morning fog turning into a cracker of a day.
Time to check out some of those steep climbs and drops and some new gravel tracks in the close by hills.
Melbourne CBD...looking good from here.











And we certainly found a few.
