Sure, looking at pictures of the Outback or reading about how enormous road trains are might give you some idea of what a bicycle ride across the Outback is like, but not in the same way that video can.
So I've put together a pseudo-sequel to my Pacific Crest Trail video with a step-by-step look of what it's like to bicycle 2,428.24 mi / 3,907.04 km across Australia from Melbourne to Darwin.
Know that I attempted to minimize the amount of violent shaking (normal shaking remains) and I apologize for the constant disruptions by the sun, but these imperfections really just go to bring you closer to the reality of what riding a bicycle across the Outback is like – definitely no walk (or ride) in the park.
I'm thinking of uploading a longer version with audio commentary about the ride, so if you have any thoughts (on this video or the potential for a new one), then leave a comment and let me know!
