This just in from Russell Worthington on his and Brad Poidevan’s trans Australia mountain bike ride:
In Port Augusta
“Well the good news is we have arrived at Port Augusta SA in the wee hours this morn.
We’re OVER half way now:)! We still have along way to go now in what we are expecting to be scorching conditions through far east SA and the NSW outback.
Spirits are high. We’ve been through testing conditions, and know there will be more, but we’re confident we will still arrive on the Gold Coast as planned next weekend.
Working Well Together
Brad’s an excellent friend and team mate. We’re working well together to maximise chances of completing this Gigantic goal (in only 3 weeks) 🙂
We are also seeing some amazing outback sunrises and sunsets. The cliffs of the GREAT Australian Bight are well worth a look if you get a chance.
We plan cross the SA/NSW border tomorrow night, and will bunk down in Broken Hill tomorrow night. Still lots of adventure ahead.”
Great stuff guys – keep pedaling!
