Big Ride Diaries

The following map shows the locations of the NSW Big Bike Rides in which I have participated. It uses Google Maps, and allows each ride to be selected or unselected dynamically. Each ride has markers for the various places visited along the way, with links to the diary entries for that day's ride.

The reason some lines have gaps are due to two reasons. In 2004, there was cyclonic weather on the mid north coast that trapped the ride at Buladelah for a day. In 2006, I had some health problems that meant that I had a day and parts of other days off the bike. Read on for details.

Note also that some rides share stopovers with others. In 2004 I started at Gloucester, and went to Bulahdelah via Tuncurry. These three stops also feature on the 2007 ride, and therefore two markers may appear on the map at almost the same point if both rides are selected. Cootamundra has a similar issue, since it was a stop on both the 2003 ride and the 2006 ride. Zoom in for a better separation of the markers if you have these combinations of rides displayed on the map.
