We are Mick and Jen, two people from a car-free family who are obsessed about bicycles. There is something unique about these pedal-powered machines that makes us think they could be a decent solution to many of the world’s problems. We have a bike shop in Townsville, north Queensland, Australia. Our focus is on bikes for touring, commuting and cargo, bikes as transport and (of course) bicycles for fun! This blog started when we first started cycle touring a few years ago and has come with us on our bicycle related journey since then. Join with us in our celebration of bicycles, cycle touring, and all sorts of bicycle related things!
