I’ve just completed one of the best off-road trails in Australia! It’s called the Mawson Trail and it spans 900km from the Adelaide Hills, straight through the Flinders Ranges and then finishes at the highest town in South Australia; Blinman. The terrain varies greatly from pine forest to rocky outcrop, to sandy desert.
The CyclingTips trip team included two other strong riders, and we were supported by a professional photographer and documentary filmmaker. Trip sponsors included Cannondale Australia (we were on Slates) and Holden Australia (we used the Sportswagon).
I can’t provide too many details about the ride at this stage, but we will have a documentary about the journey available to view soon, along with a big photo album and trip write up. Stay tuned!
