Since January is Dakki now in Sydney and we both are gearing for the next big adventure: heading up to Darwin and back through the Australian Outback via Alice Springs. All up this will be around 8,500km. Dilu will join us in Darwin to ride to Uluru together.It is called the Long Ride, an event in which bikers from all over Australia will participate and ride their motorbike from wherever they live to Darwin. More than 500 bikes are expected to arrive in Darwin on the 8 May 2010. Check out their website for background info: http://www.freewebs.com/longride2010/ And it is for a good cause – to rise awareness of prostate cancer and funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. http://www.prostate.org.au/articleLive/ This event will be covered by the media, like newspapers, magazines and possibly even TV, providing great exposure on a national level. Can wait to get started! Once on the road I will regularly update my blog and post pictures and stories from the trip. See you on the road.
