  • Germany Loop
    5 Oct 2017

    I started my challenge a little early. The plan was to ride a big loop from Frankfurt back to Frankfurt some of which was in September. This may seem like cheating but it is what I planned. Plan was gong rock solid until I hit gear problems on day 5 (wet weather trashed a hub) and wheel problems two days later. Net result I borrowed the best of German and Czech Railways and the German Postal System to get back on track.

    That said i smashed out 721 kms in the first 8 days. Back riding again on day 14 - the hardest day of them all. Thanks to Levy and Brody for keeping me to task. And thanks to my friends in Prague for giving me a hope to get things back togehter.

  • Change of Route for Germany and Czech Republic Loop
    13 Sep 2017

    I am trying to visit a few friends along the way in Berlin and Prague. So my route has been changed around a bit. Instead of anti-clockwise, I will go clockwise.

    I will start at Frankfurt Airport for first stop toe get organised in Hanau on the River Main. Then I will will follow Hessen Radweg R3 to get to Jena - heading North East. Then onto Ilmertal Radweg towards the River Elbe. Weekend in Berlin overlaps with the Berlin Marathon. Then I will track back to Elbe and follow it South to Prague for a weekend with friends there.

    Then it is heading West to find the source of the River Main and follow the Main until Wolfsburg. Then I will ditch the bicycle for a train and make my way to Kassel and Eimelrod where I will join my family in the mountains for a few days of R&R. There will be some riding done up there too - day rides only.

    Bags are packed and riding begins September 16 - ahead of the October dates but that is just fine by me.

  • Germany and Czech Republic Loop
    30 Aug 2017

    In 2016 I circumnavigated the Netherlands for Kids Cancer.

    2017 will see me make a big loop through Germany and Czech Republic .

    The journey will start in Frankfurt and follow the Main River east. Then it will head into Czechia and Prague. North from there to follow the Elbe River some of the way and onto Berlin. West from there to rejoin the Elbe and on to Hamburg. Turning south, I will follow the Leine-Heide Radweg towards Hanover and Kassel. Then it will be a few days of well earned rest in the Harz Mountains with family.

    This October, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

    Because right now, cancer is the largest single killer of children from disease in Australia – over 600 children are diagnosed with cancer every year and sadly, 3 die every week.

    Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

    And so I am riding and raising funds to support the Children's Medical Research Institute to continue their work into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

    Please support my challenge by making a donation through my fundraising page to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

    Together, we can save little lives.

    Thanks for your support.
