I AM A WORLD TRAVELLER WITH AN INTERMEDIATE TECHNOLOGY VIEW OF THE WORLD. OFTEN A SIMPLE TECHNOLOGY IS MORE ADVANCED AND I BELIEVE THE BICYCLE TO BE AN EXAMPLE OF THIS, AS IT IS MORE READILY REPAIRED IN REMOTE LOCALES. A BIKE CONTACTS YOU WITH THE ELEMENTS OF EARTH,FIRE,WATER AND AIR AND OFTEN FACILITATES CULTURAL INTERACTION DUE TO THE CURIOSITY OF LOCAL PEOPLE.
BIG RIVER CROSSING - mountain creek to Falls Creek 23.12.90
Big River crossing is a gushing torrent even during the summer "dry" season. It lies in a valley below Mt.Bogong in Victoria. The photo depicts michael during a 52km four day hike to Falls Creek and was our first attempt to combine cycle touring and hiking in one journey.
