We’ve done it! I’ve run across Australia. Henley has cycled/pushed/dragged a 350 pound bike + trailer across Australia. Together, we’ve made it through thick and thin across this incredibly vast, desolate, quiet, sandy, dry, complex, remote, captivating desert country. 119 total days, 35 of which were rest days, 2210 miles in total, 28-30 miles a day most days. It took everything we had (from the inside), and now we can say with the biggest smiles and sense of pride, “Holy moley, we did that!”
After pushing through a brutal last day of headwinds, rain, groin pain, flat tire, chaotic city traffic, and another emotional breaking point (for me), we officially hit the ocean (at no other than Henley Beach in Adelaide!) on Friday, November 8th at 5:30pm with the sun at our backs, and family and Aussie friends gathered to cheer us in. I still tear up thinking about how beautiful people are - to have supported us across this nation and also make it a priority to come see us hit the sea. Thank you to everyone who has ever loved us!!!!!!!
I have a lot more to say and show about our finish and the trip as a whole, but I need some time to collect my thoughts and emotions. I’ll post again soon, after I do some reflection. Stay tuned! Much much much more to come! I’ll also be writing more in my email newsletter so if you want the full story, sign up on my website. Link in bio.
