This set of web pages contains the notes written on the RTA
Big Ride in March 2004. The ride went from Gloucester on
the mid-north coast southwards to Berowra.
This year I have been trying to get by with less than 12kg,
partly because of weight concerns for volunteers carting a
lot of heavy packs and also because I am planning to ride back
home from Berowra with all my gear on the bike.

The following links will take you to the given day. Each day's
entry will have links to this page and to the previous and
next day's entry. Original images as pulled off the camera
will be located in subdirectories, which will also hold images
not linked from web pages.
