A little about us...
We are two Australians from Melbourne who enjoy the outdoors - cycling, hiking, running and challenging ourselves.
Shanna was born in Newcastle and has also spent time living in Sydney and the Central Coast of NSW; while Sam has lived in Melbourne most of his life.
Cycling has always been part of Sam's life but Shanna let a childhood fall keep her off the bike until late 2008. Since jumping back on (or being persuaded back on by Sam) she hasn't looked back.
We've both done a Bachelor of Arts - Shanna in Communication Studies - and we are avid readers of literature, history and wikipedia.
When we're not outdoors we spend most of our time playing with our beloved dog Boston and working on our house. Before our cycling trip we spent three years renovating a large house in Melbourne and since returning we're now doing up a rundown house in the Dandenongs.
Here is an article from a bike riding magazine back home in the state of Victoria that talks about how we started riding together.
