    Bikepacking the Waterous Trail



    I have been wanting to put my new Tubus Swing front rack on my Giant XTC 2 to the test and also to try out the Extrawheel Voyager behind the XTC 2 so I took the opportunity to revisit the Waterous Trail in October 2012 with rifraf from the Australian Cycling Forums. We completed the trail over two days, overnighting at the Bidjar Ngoulin campsite on the Munda Biddi Trail. In all honesty the Waterous Trail could be completed as a one day ride of about 63 km. That said, it was a nice easy get away into the bush for a couple of days.



    The ride write-up can be found in my blog at Aushiker.com

    Regards
    Andrew

    A great couple of days Andrew. I'm keen on another trip. Anything in mind to take advantage of the current great weather? I enjoyed using my tent for the first time instead of using my bivybag and am keen to replicate the experience. Cheers Aidan

    Getting to warm for this bunny. Unlike your kind self I prefer the milder times of the year for touring so will be probably not doing anything more to April or later in 2013 now.
