Touring cyclists are a rare if not dying breed. The two we met were a Japaneese lady at Perth East station just arrived in Australia and a man cycling the Munda Biddi Trail who we were introduced to in Pemberton.

Since replacing my batteries on my ‘speedo’ in June 2016, before riding to Cornwall in the UK, we’ve ridden 5,033km. We clockup on rest days 30-40kms easily pottering about and seeing things which are not included in the above total.
