Locked gate? You think that’ll stop me? On Friday I climbed Whitney Portal Road. 11 miles with about 4,200ft elevation gain. The part past the locked gate (which starts at the bottom of the road leading to first switchback) was the best bit. No cars! Just solitary suffering, with the occasional g’day to a hiker. Greta day on a bike.


I’m stuck at the shop today. The weather is perfect. Everyone is out in “explory trail” mode. 

Self employed white boy problems.

Yesterday. On my way to destiny: to climb Whitney Portal.

Yesterday, waiting for fog to roll in and out and in again.


Looking forward to exploring more of the road less ridden with the Soigneur team this weekend in Gippsland. Keep your eyes peeled for some shots in the coming weeks.

We’ve been on the road seven months now. People we met in Mexico already feel like old friends and distant nostalgic summercamp golden hours. Places that were scary black doorways have become family dinners. Just a reminder that fear of the future is such a silly disease. #oregontopatagonia
