Sydney - Melbourne Nov 08 - anyone interested?

Postby phillipa47 » Mon Oct 20, 2008 10:57 am

Hi there,

I'm planning to bike from Brisbane to Melbourne beginning 28th Oct, I have (I think) a ride partner from Brisbane to Sydney and am looking for one to go the rest of the way.

I estimate I'll be ready around 12th November, I guess it's a little short notice......

I'm a 34 year old New Zealander, I've just moved here from Bulgaria. I'm on a bit of a tight budget, so will be carrying camping gear. Planning to average about 100kms per day, haven't devised the route yet, am open to suggestions.

Cheers
Pip

Don't forget to keep us up to date on your progress Pip, especially if you're going inland. I did the coast so I'd be keen to hear how you go.

Safe riding

Hi Pip, I'm about to do the same journey (sydney to melbourne). Have you already left? Any advice?

If you haven't left yet, I'd love to join you but I won't be ready for another few days.
