I'm from Daisy Hill in Brisbane, on the mid south coast of Australia. I'm an administrator of the biggest MTB and Road cycling forums in South East QLD - www.mtbdirt.com.au and www.roadgrime.com.au.
I'm heading over to socal in a few weeks time for the Park Tool conference (Ontario), been looking forward to it for a while now and hoping to get out for a pedal on the off days (got a thread on this in the socal section - if you can help me out please post up )
Here in Daisy we have some great trails - I have trails less than 5 minutes from my front door, with kangaroos, koalas, possums and all sorts of other furry animals to share the trails with.
If anyone is heading over here to Aus, drop us a line on mtbdirt or roadgrime and join us for a ride or two during your stay.
