This blog has been started to document my attempt to participate in the 2008 Simpson Desert Cycle Classic. http://www.sdcc.org.au/
Why ride across a desert on a mountain bike when there are perfectly good (not to mention air conditioned) 4wds available?
I can't answer that except to say that ever since I heard of it in 1988, it's been in my mind as a constant reminder of "things" left unfinished.
The map below shows you (roughly) where the event takes place.
In February this year... I made the decision to sign up. Pay my entry and get into what I call "relaxed training".
