Getting the gears off.....

Very fine weekend at the 2016 Single Speed MTB World Championships in Woodend, Victoria. Where every rider has raceplate No 1 and where the non riding is more important than the riding.

A stain on Australia..........

I am sure many watched 4 Corners on ABC last night. The trauma visited upon these children by a government of a so called civilized nation is a stain and embarrassment upon Australia.

This powerful illustration, by Simon Bosch/Fairfax Media, appeared in the weekend edition of the Sydney Morning Herald. It accompanied an article by Elizabeth Farrelly about welcome, immigration and the need to have a place to call 'home'.

The best thing to come out of the Tour de France.......

....Is my good mate Liam Doherty 's annual tipping comp which for the 3rd year running put some great funds into Save the Children Australia . This year, thanks to everyone's generosity Liam was able to tip $1800 in. Thanks to all of you who were part of the fun for a good cause.

Thanks to everyone who continues to support Save the Children via my mediterr annee fundraising with some excellent donations in recent weeks nearly 18 months after my journey finished.

Here's Liam's best side as I chased him into some Margaret River singletrack over in WA a couple of weeks ago.......

The Favourite Five.......

Anna, Toby, Anders, Will and Jack.

Add a few days at our Snowy Mountains hideaway, the trees, rock, wildlife, imagination and looking out for each other. Takeaway television, iPads and internet.

7 year drought.....

It is 7 years today, 26 September 2009, since my little town of Bundanoon here in the Southern Highlands of NSW stopped selling that environmental scourge and 'pure' marketing wonder; bottled water. A day in which the whole town came out, we launched our drinking fountains and celebrated good old tap water.

Educational and Influential??

Those of you who came to a talk in recent weeks or ones before will have heard me speak of how my primary school teacher reconnected with me, after 45 years, in a very generous (for Save the Children Australia) way during my Med journey. Now my time at the University of Bradford Management School 30 years ago has resulted in a surprising international award.

Yesterday AACSB International, the world's largest business education network representing over 750 University and Business Schools worldwide, announced their 30 Influential Leaders for 2016. To be among such a group of high achievers worldwide in the fields of business and social good is somewhat humbling to say the least.

Ice trees and grass skis........

(Reposted from below after photos mysteriously disappeared!)

Been guiding Pete for over a dozen years now for a few days each winter seeking out backcountry runs. Marginal conditions last weekend meant for a 'mixed' terrain experience in a new area for him and his first hut visits.

Thanks........and the book

To everyone who came along to one of my talks in the past couple of weeks. Fun night in Canberra to finish current series last night, fittingly held at the Hellenic Club (given I spent more time in Greece than any other Mediterranean country).

Huge thanks to World Expeditions for organising the tour and to Paddy Pallin and Osprey Packs for supporting it.

My book 'Mediterranean - a year around a charmed and troubled sea' should be published by the end of the year. Online pre publication orders available very soon.

Who the hell are you?

It was fun choosing those 5 places around the world but answering 'Who are you?' on ABC Perth a bit harder.

Looking forward to the Perth leg of the tour tomorrow

Was fun deciding the 5 places. What would you choose?

A recovery day today in Western Australia's Margaret River (after riding the Dwellingup MTB Classic race yesterday) - good coffee, great trails for a warm down, more coffee, watching big wave surfers and drinking fine local wines. With Liam Doherty
