    Oh, well if you have a support car, it would make things considerably easier...

    LAM is correct in saying that everything will be more expensive, its a monopoly, you buy their product for their price otherwise you can simply ride to the next stop 150km away. Shit.

    So yeh, it would be way cheaper to fly over than ride, however the ride will be far more rewarding.

    Someone call mavic and get them to ship their neutral support vehicle asap!

    Right now all I have is a very messy blog write up at psotmn.blogspot.com basically writing about all the equipment and planning I've done so far.

    (start from the bottom of the page "holiday mode" and work your way up, or you'll be reading it backwards)...

    haven't been in contact with mates over east, but would love to surf a few couches if I get the chance. will post further details when I get some rough dates of arrival.

    Prawza are open to having people joining you on parts of your trip? Is this still your route?

    wheel works im actually considering this, still undecided if i will ride the roadie or a track bike, but if your going fixed i would love to do it, i also agree with praw in that summer will be killer, i say waiting an extra 3/4 months till april would be a better time to start, but if your determined enough then im keen and will start building something worthy of the ride straight away, plus training like fuck

    No, thats not my intended route, I rode that route last year to Esperance. Took me 11days covering ~1100km.

    Shit yeah, Esperance is high on the list of the best places I've ever visited. We drove from Perth to dive, absolutely stunning country (...and a biiig shipwreck at the end).
