    I made it...:)

    just thought I'd chuck in a post to say that I made across Australia and back...in 1 piece. It sure feels good to know that I've ridden 4200kms, but then I think of Mediacreation, he's done that 5 times now. A tribute to him.

    But I'm looking forward to the next ride across, it was so much fun. Of course there were tough days, like Vics weather that they turned on for us, very cold and wet. But it was till heaps cool and heaps of fun.

    Thanks to Mediacreations for his organisation and help on the ride

    Cheers

    You certainly did make it - and with style.

    Gargoola is a great rider and it was great to have him as part of the team.

    Oh just looking through here, i didn't see earlier that you'd posted those events, cheers for that. Sorry I didn't reply earlier to it. Yeh I might go on 1 of them, but at the moment, I'm concentrating on alot of things other than cycling, although i wish i could a bit more.

    I should tell media creations that I've found him another crazy guy who wants to ride with him across next time.

    Oh I didn't mention which ride I'd go on, probably the 300km ride mentioned above cause I've never done over 201kms before in a day

    Cheers
