Recumbents and all feet forward machines
Good work, keep it up!!
Still making excellent progress I see, the most boring bit odd the nullarbor is done!
G'day Mark. Got a message from cousin Ree about your trip. If the timing is right, I might be able to help with a bed for the night in Goulburn. Let me know and I'll see what I can manage. Safe travels. David W.
I'm back in NSW.... Just.
Albury tonight. Tarcutta Sunday. Yass Monday. Canberra for some rest days tues & wed.
Only just found this thread (and your blog), what a ride! It's a great read going through your blog, checking out the pics etc, inspiring stuff . Not too long now! (relatively speaking )
When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments- Elizabeth West.
Great to hear. I have been following the blog.
I'm impressed. So much so that I will donate to Legacy.
Great going Mark.
I've been following on the blog but hadn't checked in for a while.
I must go and catch up.
It will be interesting to hear what you have to say about the RV as a long distance machine now that you have been through the experience.
Hey Mark, my dad saw you today near the wagga turnoff. I had told him about you and he went back to say gday but you must have been too quick for him!!
Yes. I was a bit quick for him. He caught me at Gundagai today
Thanks Old Bloke. .
Sunday 25 May...last day.
If anyone is interested in escorting me, I'll be at Gloria Jeans, Sydney Olympic Park (near the footy stadium) (AT) 7.30am to ride off to Bondi.
Route to be decided on the day.
All welcome to tag along.
Too far away Mark or I'd join you for sure.
Colleen and me are just recently returned from a month cycling the Mundabiddi trail.
I thought I saw a flouro green tumble weed while flying back to Sydney but it must have been you in the RV.
Colleen and me will meet you at Gloria Jeans on Sat.
Ummm it's Sunday!
Although I have it on good authority that Mark might need an escort from the Preston maccas at the southern end of the m7 from 10am on Saturday!
Mark please let me know if I'm stepping out of line
No. That's perfectly ok. The more, the merrier. 10am Saturday, Maccas (AT) Prestons.
Then the Final Leg ... SUNDAY 7,30am. Gloria Jeans, Sydney Olympic Park... riding thru to Bondi Pavillion, arriving 11am
Damn fine effort. 99% of people couldn't even conceive of riding 1% of the distance you've just covered, let alone doing it.
Look forward to seeing to you at SOP tomorrow morning.
Thanks Issabella24 for pointing out my date stuff up.
Congratulation "Recumbenteer" - I knew you could do it!What an achievement. First Velomobile (Rotovelo) to cross Australia
A mighty fine effort in the riding and keeping me up to date with your blog.

Just finally cut down my Mobius footage of when Marky D and the Green Jellybean came to Geelong, 3500km into his journey across Australia.....
It was my first chance to ride with another velomobile....I made Mark ride and extra 70km but did show him the nice sights of the Bellarine Peninsula and he drank coffee

Nice vid....I've got 137 snippets of my Crossing to go through....I'll add you when I find you
Sounds like you are going to be busy in the cutting room ?
How is 'normal' life panning out after such an awesome trip ?

Riggsbie, normal life is very hard to settle into. I've been back 5 days, & am still trying to come to terms with my accomplishment.
Not to mention I've got a 2 week work trip 1st up.
Gonna take me twice as long to settle. LOL
Wonder if the boss will let me take the RV?? LOL
