A not so fun day trying to navigate my way 20km on a walking track through the mountains with the bike. It was hailing, my brake pads were worn bare, I kept slipping over on the rocks and the bike kept falling on me. 
Carrying the bike on such a small trail was difficult to say the least. I guess this is what happens when you don't double check your route after planning it.

Making my way up to the top of Mt Kosciusko, Australia's highest mountain.

At this rate I should be home for new year's eve. After mt Kosciusko, I'll be making my way through Thredbo, falls creek, Hotham, Mt Stirling and Mt Buller.

After a couple days of riding in the rain in Kosciusko national Park, I decided to stop a little early and seek shelter in Valentines Hut. I was able to start a nice fire and dry most of my wet clothes.

Testing out the fatbike today riding up and down some big hills in the blue mountains. I'm planning on riding from Canberra to Melbourne through the mountains in a couple of weeks. Excited to get back that great feeling bikepacking gives you!

We've been in far north Queensland for almost 2 months without seeing any Cassowarys...and in the last few days we've seen more than 8!!! Getting the van serviced tomorrow and then heading back down south. Does anyone have any multi-day bike routes they recommend in New South Wales? Maybe in Kosciusko or Blue Mountains?

It's not very often you get to see koalas in the wild. Let alone a baby and mother up this close. What a treat!

After coming over some harsh snow covered mountains, I take a few days riding through the highlands. While there might not be any snow, it was still extremely cold at night.

Want to know what it's like to go bikepacking in Kyrgyzstan during winter? This is a 3 part short film that I've been working on over the past few months. In part 1, I climb over my first snow-covered mountain with my bike.⠀
It would mean a lot if you could watch the first 10 minutes.⠀
Cheers⠀

While travelling through the cold mountains in Kyrgyzstan I found myself thinking about the beautiful beaches and the warm weather back home in Australia. .
.
Now after being back for more than 2 months I find myself dreaming of the mountains at night and the challenge they brought.
.
.
I miss the mountains!
.
.
Already looking for my next big adventure and should be ready to leave in the next couple of months. .
.
.It will involve an inflatable boat...Stay tuned!

Back in Melbourne getting fat now after an incredible trip through asia. Going to have to get out of the routine of eating 6000 calories a day.

While not a very elegant photo, it perfectly sums up my week in Kazakhstan. Crossing knee deep icey cold rivers and then spending the rest of the day (unsuccessfully) trying to warm up.

I went flying off my bike while coming down the mountain and hitting these icey roads. A few bruises but nothing serious. Sad to be out of the mountains now and back in civilisation.

Made it to the top of my last high pass in the mountains. I camped at the top and it was the coldest night of my life. I had to stuff everything I owned down my sleeping bag and even rip up my notepad to use the paper as insulation. This is a view from the top of an old soviet Observatory  from 1956. .
