Vans Cottesloe opens when the sun is barely up and not even a mouse stirs on Napoleon Street. It’s a really peaceful part of the day and on our cycle around the Swan River today we detour for warm drinks and breakfast. Turns out this morning was the coldest one this year so far, and this …Read more »
Welcome to a perfect winter’s day in Perth! Taking advantage of some superb weather conditions over the weekend we set out on a relaxed paced pedal along the coast. This circular route starts at Claremont Train Station to North Mole in Fremantle. Alternatively a good starting point is Lake Espresso Cafe because there’s plenty of parking …Read more »
Completing a small section of the Munda Biddi last year, Donnelly River Village became our start and finish, where we spent a night in between preparing and recovering from the bike journey. You can catch those posts here and here. We had such an awesome break in the old …Read more »
The Goat Farm Mountain Park is located in Greenmount National Park, just off Great Eastern Hwy (94) and under 10km from Midland Train Station.
The plan was to ride the blue cruiser trail to cannonball, and while I continue down the blue cross country trail, Derek would take the downhill black trail. We started at the …Read more »

A quick calculation and that’s about 6 hours of driving for …Read more »

Cross country, technical, jumps and downhill. Plus it’s all located in some pretty exceptional forest. And afterwards finish your ride with a refreshment from …Read more »
Perth’s newly created waterfront precinct has been years in the making and last weekend, Elizabeth Quay finally opened! *happy dance* Have you visited? What do you think? I love that everyone has an opinion on it.
Like the premier of Western Australia said, ‘this is a one-in-100 year change,”. This project has certainly transformed the city’s …Read more »
Our plans to cycle along the river were halted not even half way when out of nowhere I experienced some fairly sharp piercing pains to the right side of one of my knees. Arghhh! When it became clear I couldn’t continue cycling we boarded the train for Perth at Canning Bridge, and all the while …Read more »
Who would have thought cycling along the railway tracks could be a little scenic and peaceful? For part of our cycle this morning we were cocooned by bush and old trees (between Claremont and Subiaco). We started our journey from Claremont train station and apart from a few disconnected sections at the beginning from Claremont, we …Read more »
