What is an oldyssey? Several years ago Bike SA ran a cycling event called the Outback Odyssey and another group of 'older' cyclists organised an alternative; the Outback Oldyssey. It was an epic journey, riding up to a 100 km on some days.
I joined the Oldessy in the second week and enjoyed some challenging riding in the Flinders Ranges.
One of the most memorable days was riding through Bunyero and Brachina Gorges.
Another challenging and 'fun' day was riding on a bush track from Wilpena to Rawnsley Park.
Many of the roads and tracks we rode along were part of the Mawson Trail, a mapped cycling route from just north of Adelaide to the Blinman in the Flinders Ranges.
