In school I had my future mapped out – I was always going to follow my father’s footsteps and go onto the orchard. Greenhill Orchards has been in our family’s name since 1865, and with such a long history there is also a strong connection and many memories.
Looking back on last year’s trip to Cairns we were really keen for another epic trip on the bike to explore more Australian countryside. Plan A – head to WA and visit Deb’s brother. The plan was fairly simple I’d ride straight to Perth and pick Deb up from the airport, then head south following…
Covid19 has consumed our lives for the past couple of years, but there now appears to be light at the end of the tunnel. With restrictions lifting I have been able to get out on the bike and ride beyond the ACT borders.

Week four of working from home and while I’m actually quite enjoying the whole experience. However, I really miss the commute to and from the office. While cyclists and motorcyclists don’t agree on many things the one thing they do generally agree on is that the ride to and from work provides a good transition…
Covid-19 is certainly creating havoc on our world and we are all trying to find ways of coping with this new reality. 2020 has felt like a bad dream so far, with the devastating bush fire season here in Australia burning over 18,000,000 hectares, leaving towns decimated and 34 people killed.
