Thanks to Ari for the tip, the Jakarta Globe has a cute story on living and cycling in Canberra.
Nearly six months after taking up cycle-commuting and mountain biking, I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to enjoy the excellent cycling facilities in Canberra and the benefits it has brought to me and my family.
During my cycling trips around town I often encounter families cycling together with their young children —with toddlers towed behind their parents’ bikes in baby carriages or fathers and daughters mountain biking together in nature reserves. I also participate in campus groups’ cycling challenges up the 812-meter-high Black Mountain and I attend mountain biking races where active teenagers, adults and seniors alike compete for prestigious titles.
It’s heaven on earth we’ve got here punters!
