Vans Cottesloe opens when the sun is barely up and not even a mouse stirs on Napoleon Street. It’s a really peaceful part of the day and on our cycle around the Swan River today we detour for warm drinks and breakfast. Turns out this morning was the coldest one this year so far, and this …Read more »
Welcome to a perfect winter’s day in Perth! Taking advantage of some superb weather conditions over the weekend we set out on a relaxed paced pedal along the coast. This circular route starts at Claremont Train Station to North Mole in Fremantle. Alternatively a good starting point is Lake Espresso Cafe because there’s plenty of parking …Read more »
In for a day of stormy weather we decided to visit the beach in our wet weather gear for a short walk, I love seeing the storm stir up the ocean. We spotted a guy at the end of the jetty attempting to snap selfies of waves crashing over, on and around him, good thing he …Read more »
Catching up with good friends on Friday evening we set a pizza date at Magna Pizza inside The Mantle. While sometimes on a Friday following the end of the working week it’s a little hard to not want to sink into the couch, though once we rocked up at The Mantle to some …Read more »

South American street food sounded like a superb way to begin the boy’s birthday weekend. Add a parilla BBQ and we could possibly be set for a feast of many at Asado.
On a Thursday night the streets in Claremont appear to be empty and we conclude it’s going to be quiet one as we short cut walk through …Read more »
Completing a small section of the Munda Biddi last year, Donnelly River Village became our start and finish, where we spent a night in between preparing and recovering from the bike journey. You can catch those posts here and here. We had such an awesome break in the old …Read more »
I’ve been slightly hesitant about the Goat Farm Mountain Bike Park. The park is know for its steep terrain and rocky gardens, and while I’m honest here, navigating rocky and steep at the same time needs some more practice from my end. Well, throwing caution to the wind and going in with an ‘I can’ …Read more »
Venturing into D’Entrecasteaux National Park we were rewarded with some incredible rugged coastlines and patches of karri forest. It was wonderful to see first-hand the forest recovery from a fire that tore through the area over a year ago, destroying much in its path. Well, that said, not all is lost, green vegetation has sprung from …Read more »
