Don't be offended by the title, we are talking about two Mongolian towns called Mörön and how two mates (Tom Doig and Tama Puglsley) thought it would be a genius idea to ride 1487km from one Mörön to the other Mörön. The result is a book that is described as being 'hilarious'.


Book publisher Allen and Unwin have five copies of this book for five BNA readers - so you have a fantastic chance to win yourself a copy.

Just a little creativity from your side, in less than 25 words answer this question:
Question: If you were on a tight budget, which remote location would cycle and why?

Total prize value: $124.95
Start Date: April 9. 2012
End Date: April 22. 2012

I'd head off from Sydney on a loaded tourer and ride via the following destinations:

Bong Bong, NSW
Wagga Wagga, NSW
Grong Grong, NSW

I'd do my best to catch my own food, and camp along the way.

I'd make a bee-line for Damboring, here in WA. A lack of attractions would assure budget accommodation. And probably vice versa for that matter.

Up here in the wet sub-tropics there are many options.
Ride from Moore to Ogmore for example.
Or Moore to Moreton Bay.
Or Moore to Kenmore.

Vietnam, from the south to the north, over all the mountains, deserted country lanes and taking my time to enjoy the ocean breeze.

Mountain, glacier, forest, lake, river, sea...these are the landscapes that resonate in my mind. And these are the reasons I will ride the Carretera Austral through Patagonia - Chile and Argentina to the Fin del Mundo.

I have always thought it would be fun to intentionally go to a nice little town in northern NSW -Come By Chance

It would be a tough ride through the ranges to Gunedah, but after that it is pancake flat

Las Vegas-Nevada to Truth or Consequences-New Mexico I think it would be a great ride of introspection.

I would grab a cheap fixie and ride around every Hawaiian island, over the course of a month or two.
Bed roll on my back, and a camera around my neck.
