    Maidei goes on a world tour-Part 1 of the Bicycle Mystery Tour

    Hello this is Maidei & i started my round the world trip today. I biked along the beach..why i'm not sure . Perhaps it's because all tourists to Western Australia have to experience the beaches. I made it a few metres through the sand & a small hill Crazycanuck built for me. It was fun cycling by the beach but i'm not sure if i'll get all the sand out of the important bits of my bike. I need to do some stretching as that hill was a bit steep

    I even made a friend w a small child who wanted to know where I was going. (too cute!)

    I think i get to see the start of the Bibbulmun & munda biddi tracks this week.

    Nice. When it's time for Maidei to make her way to Brisbane, I'll take her for a spin through the local wetlands

    I love Maidei's "buff" and onesie, but do worry about her falling and crocking her noggin without a helmet. Maybe when she gets to her next destination, someone can fashion one out of a beer cap?

    Welcome to TE, Maidei, and to your adventure. I can't wait til you get to the east coast USA!!!
    I can do five more miles.

    I love the pics. Did you tell the child all about how Maidei was traveling around the world?

    How many participants do we have in Australia?

    Ok - so I guess I might take her for a River Loop? You can't really do Brisbane without a River Loop! Or for a ride on the MTB at Gap Creek or Bunya if my shoulder is OK in time.

    So are you talking the wetlands around Boondall Max? If so, you are quite near me and we can probably ride her from one of us to the other, which would be kind of neat.

    Yes, the Boondall Wetlands. I'd be happy to carry Maidei there and hand her off to you (or vice versa)

    I agree that a river ride is essential. I have to say the Gap Creek MTB ride sounds intriguing. I don't think she should leave Brisbane without experiencing that!

    dirt & beyond

    Good evening, this is Maidei checking in again.

    It's been a very hot, muggy & humid week here in Perth but we still did some biking. Today, Crazycanuck took me on a short dirt ride but I had a few small issues. I have the wrong bike for the dirt & had an endo . I decided dirt wasn't a good idea & the tree near me was so inviting I jumped onto it. Crazycanuck had to tear me away. Good thing there weren't any spiders or other creatures! I am a small person you know

    Tomorrow I meet Trekhawk & then the rest of the world awaits me!

    Maidei is so lucky to see such beautiful beaches! Gorgeous. So after pinkbikes, is she going to be tripping around with more TE gals in Brisbane area for awhile? Maybe we get to see more wonderful sites.
