Day 1 – Gunnedah

Team Berg had some minor technical problems in the morning to make it to the first meeting point at Wyong in time due to some early morning delays and an accident on Pacific highway, but then caught up with the group in Singleton.

Great to see so many familiar faces from previous rides again, and heaps of new ones.


We had perfect weather all day long, and we arrived at Gunnedah around 2pm – but not without drama – the Beast almost ran out of fuel on the last stretch, with only fumes left in the tank.

CB has been a number of times in Gunnedah before for work, but never made it up to the lookout:


At night we meet our friend Jody at the local RSL to catch up over a chilled beverage and yummy food.


Long Ride 2013 – Sydney to Cairns

Yes, it is this time of the year again: on 4 May, Team Berg will hit the road to participate in the Long Ride 2013, a fund-raising campaign to support the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and raise awareness on prostate cancer which is the most common cancer diagnosed and the second greatest cause of cancer deaths in men in Australia.

Long Ride is a voluntary group of motorcyclists of various ages, backgrounds and abilities who come together from all over Australia to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer. This year, hundreds of Long Ride motorcyclists will be supporting the Foundation by embarking on an incredible journey from all over Australia to Cairns.

Team Berg will be making the epic journey from Sydney to Cairns and as part of our Long Ride contribution to the Prostate Cancer Foundation; we have set up a fund-raising account. We would be most grateful for your generous support for this important men’s health issue. If you would like to make a donation, please visit our fund-raising page:

We aim to post messages and pictures for you on a daily basis once we’re on the road. So check out our site regularly.

Thank you very much for your kind support!

Dilini and Chris
