Its almost Christmas and well and truly summer here in Oz.  Long days and long rides to prep for overeating at Christmas for those who celebrate it (we also overdo it for all the other great celebrations we have for our diverse cultures also!).

A much longer blog will come on our latest adventure over the 7 peaks challenge in just two days but we wanted to share it as we are still on a high! 8000 metres of vertical, 1450 k's in car and bike, and a fitting climax on the barren slopes of Col du Hotham!  A tough intro to 'flat' Australia for our dutch friend from Cafe du Cycliste but he dug deep and got through (nice one Martijn, thats a story to take back to Amsterdam and the CdC crew in Nice).

It was all amazing but dodging wombats on Mt Buffalo during a midnight ascent may have been a highlight!

More to come and best wishes of the season to you all.  Enjoy your riding!
