My bike is still jet lagged... She is sleeping in a crate for tomorrows 4 hour flight north to the top of Australia. We're heading to the Daintree Jungle to start riding soon!
Hello From Sydney: My first few experiences down under have been exciting. I had my first meal of kangaroo and alligator last night. If you're wondering how it tastes, lets just say its no wonder I never eat red meat! The kangaroo was like tough liver and the gator tasted like an old shoe sole. At least the Boags beer tastes great.
Sydney feels very much like Vancouver's False Creek with an inner harbour but $$$$$$$. Amazing City. Will walk to top of this bridge up the girders after I cycle back here from Cairns.
I'm headed out on a flight to top tip of Country Daintree Jungle today looking down at the 4,500 km route I need to cover. I will have no email in the jungle for a few days, so I will be sure to post again as soon as I can.
Strong headwinds winds are still forecasted out of the SE. Not great to cycle into but great weather 27C slightly humid.
I am a fire captain and cancer survivor. I have now cycled around the earth by bicycle for cancer charity, but my journey is not over. I followed the rules of Guinness global circumnavigation. Same bike, same direction, cross two antipodal points, the equator and cover at least 29,000 km. My final legs were crossing Australia north to south and east to west across the deserts bringing the total countries crossed to fifteen and a distance of 29,000 km over 10 years. The journey now continues to the most desolate and highest points of the earth. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
