Three Capes Walk - Day 3
So I know that the whole three capes experience is meant to be a fancy-smancy premium walking experience and all that, but (and I think this is a fair question to ask) ... tile mosaics in the duckboards ... is that a step too far? And if that's reasonable, ...

Three Capes Walk - Day 1
I feel I should start this post by noting that it was snowing when I woke up this morning. Specifically, it was snowing at sea level in Lauderdale on the day we were setting off to hike the three capes track (like many other Tasmanian's, we were taking adva...

It's been awhile (again)
So, it's been awhile (again) and that reflects what is perhaps a loss of excitement I now hold towards blogging in a world where I seemed chained to a computer six and a half days a week keeping up with work and other obligations I've taken on because they ...

SBX25 - Strava Challenge 2016
For a long time there's been a pretty big gap between the Meehan Ranges and the Blue Tiers if you're heading up the east coast and looking for somewhere to ride. The East Coast - A grave yard for cyclists And yes I am ignoring Kellevie, the Orford forshore ...

Filtering the money ...
When Kim and I bought our house a year or so ago we hit what I expect is a fairly common dilemma: neither of our fridges fit into the kitchen space set aside for the fridge ... Fridge must fit here ... and be right side opening. After a bit of back and fort...

2016 Hobart Bicycle Count
I love volunteering for the annual bicycle count ... well evidence suggests I love it enough to volunteer at least every second year and I know this because you can read my previous posts on the 2012 and 2014 count, but not the 2013 and 2015 counts (I think...

Three Capes Walk - Day 2
So, we had a bid day today ... 11kms!!!! With such a mighty distance to traverse, we did what any self-respecting bushwalker would do - we had a nice lazy breakfast and read the newspaper (yes, Anthony really did bring a newspaper to read). By the time we'd...

Evans Street Junction
All cyclists hate the wait at Evans Street junction. Let's just get that said and out of the way. Evans Street Intersection (with Davey Street).  This is the first intersection you hit when you come into Hobart from the North and has probably the largest vo...

Lake King William Circumnavigation (Fail)
I've been thinking for a while now that with all these record low water levels in our hydro storages that this could be the time to try and circumnavigate Lake King William ... Lake King William Little did I know as I set off this morning, to do just this, ...

Caves Track
I did a good thing today ... I think, I went and helped groom the new (still to be opened) Caves Track in the Meehan Ranges. At least I think I helped. I do know that I got to drive my pretend 4WD (Mitsubishi Outlander) up into the Meehan and that was cool ...
