For those of you who were at the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Conference 2011 or have been watching the blog, you will know that I am going on a bicycling and camping trip with my family for the Great West Australian Bike Ride 2011 (http://www.greatwest.com.au/).
We have been preparing for the last 6 months or so, by getting our gear, bikes and bodies ready.
David with Aaron (right) and Rohan (left) training in the Perth hills. Look for the city in the distance.
The time for training is over as the ride is now here.
The ride is a 9 day, all inclusive, cycling and camping holiday adventure which will see you explore towering forests, white sandy beaches & world famous wineries in Australia's South West.
In those 9 days, we will travel 560km (348 mi) around some of the most stunning countryside that Australia has to offer.
Below is a summary of the 2011 Rider Route, clicking on the links will go to the post for that day as they are published.
