These are accounts of the various places I've been cycling and

collection of photos of odd things being carried on various bikes
that I've built.
- Barrington Tops 1999
Barrington Tops is in north-ish New South Wales, a bit of a
plateau that has state forest on it and a national park. I spent
three days riding around this with Ken Wilson, where I discovered
that even easy mountain biking can be quite hard going on a
recumbent bike (especially one without suspension).
A multi-event cycle contest held by the HPV
crew - attracts mostly recumbent riders even though an upright
could probably do quite well. Between the 20km road race and the
enduro offroad bit you'd want to be quite fit. Fun to attend and a
chance to see lots of different bikes.
- Canberra 6 hour
Same place, but different... weather. Six hours
of round and round in the cold rain that Canberra does so well.
Mike got mild hypothermia, Ian got a bit annoyed.

Nuclear Cycle 2, 2000
Thirty people, three months, five
megametres. I rode half the distance in two months on a recumbent
- The Canberra
24 mountain bike race, 2001. We came second to last in our class,
but won the "most fun" category outright.
