Bogong Newsletter Edition 9

A cycling odyssey across Java.

Bogong staffer David gives an account of his recent cycle trip from Jakarta to Bali, Indonesia.

Back in 2010 I had an epic cycle tour across Vietnam, so when a group of friends started talking about a similar trip to Indonesia I was instantly interested. The plan was to fly in to Jakarta and then somehow make it across Java to Bali, taking in as many volcanoes and back roads as we could. Java is renowned for its volcanoes, so naturally the route was planned to cross as many as possible.

STAFF SNIPPETS

As usual there are many things happening amongst our well-travelled staff.

Bogong owner Neil Blundy has just returned from hut to hut walking in the Austrian Alps. Check out his photo gallery, featuring spectacular alpine scenery.

Bogong staffer Merv Trease recently competed in the Australian Rogaining 24 Hour Championships in the Atherton Tablelands, north Queensland with long time rogaining buddy, Vic Sedunary. The boys covered 77km of distance in fairly warmish weather (15-25 degrees) during the 24 hour event.  Despite the challenging conditions they won the Men's Super Veterans Divison and came 9th overall! Merv tested out the new La Sportiva Goretex Wildcats. He says they did an excellent job of preventing spear grass and grass seeds irritating his feet during the race. Check out the Wildcats here.
