RTA Big Ride 2003 Diary


This set of web pages contains the notes written on the RTA Big Ride in March 2002. The ride went from Warragamba in Western Sydney southwards to Bungendore - east of Canberra - and then west through Yass and Harden to Cootamundra.

I used the touring bike on this ride, since there were sections on dirt, and because the tourer would be more comfortable on longer rides and on hills. The availability of the panniers would also be helpful in carrying items needed during the day, and obviate the need to carry a backpack.

Here is an image of the bike a few days beforehand, set up for the ride:
