Why are you doing it?
Where is the motor?
Last night was the first in the Bivy at Moreton Station. A Bivy is like a waterproof bag with a raised section near your face so you can breathe. I like the concept, but way too hot for Cape York … especially with legs that were still cooling down after the days riding. I lay on top of the Bivy until 2am, when it was finally cool enough to zip up.
I was really looking forward to the ride today as I only had 40k of Dirt Road then 80k of the infamous Old Telegraph Track. I downed the obligatory Burger at Bramwell Junction and struck up a conversation with a guy wearing a Paluma Push T-Shirt.
The Old Tele didn’t disappoint! 5hrs of Creek Crossings and a Track that winds through the Heathlands finally stopped my from counting Kilometers. Is driven it twice before and tackling it on a MTB was a dream come true. Despite over 500ks in my legs after 4 days, I was much faster than the 4wds and often overtook traffic jams at creek crossings as they deliberated over which line to take … and get the recovery gear ready.
The questions above have been asked many times so far. And I’ve had plenty of time to consider and we’re. Why? Because I can.
