As some readers may already know I have been working away at constructing a fully featured dedicated mountain bike track at the Lake Giles exploration site. Most of the planning and building took place from late 2012 to mid 2013 using nothing but hand tools and recycled rainwater.
Located in the Yilgarn bush in Western Australia, this is not your local track! The nearest paved road is some 120km away, the nearest major town a good 250km away and Perth just shy of 700km from the trail. Isolated and wild would be the best way to describe the bushland here, but it also uniquely beautiful – this is no desert!
