[SIGHTS OF SHIMANO GRAVEL MUSTER | PART 1 | SIMPSONS GAP BIKE PATH]

Less than 1 month to go until “The Muster”!

To help build excitement/anticipation, over the next few weeks, we’ll be posting about some of the wild, unique and quirky sights we’ll see along the way.

First up… Simpsons Gap Bike Path.

This is the first timed/racing segment of Day 1…

And with it’s relatively short length (17km), smooth surface and stunning landscape, it’s the perfect introduction to the outback!

“𝑇ℎ𝑒 𝑝𝑎𝑡ℎ 𝑤𝑖𝑛𝑑𝑠 𝑝𝑎𝑠𝑡 𝑐𝑟𝑒𝑒𝑘𝑠 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑅𝑖𝑣𝑒𝑟 𝑅𝑒𝑑 𝐺𝑢𝑚 𝑤𝑜𝑜𝑑𝑙𝑎𝑛𝑑𝑠, 𝑡ℎ𝑟𝑜𝑢𝑔ℎ 𝑀𝑢𝑙𝑔𝑎 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑊𝑖𝑡𝑐ℎ𝑒𝑡𝑡𝑦 𝐵𝑢𝑠ℎ 𝑔𝑟𝑜𝑣𝑒𝑠, 𝑡𝑜 𝑒𝑥𝑝𝑜𝑠𝑒𝑑 𝑟𝑜𝑐𝑘𝑦 ℎ𝑖𝑙𝑙𝑠”
– northernterritory.com

Yes, the scenery is spectacular. But even better is the finishing line…

The final 1km of the stage is an uphill kick to the top of Flagons Hill, where you’ll be greeted by our very own pop-up bar (with FREE beer)!!

So, grit the teeth, slam down the watts, and get ready to celebrate the start of an epic adventure overlooking the outback sunset with new friends.

🎶 This is Aus-trail-iiiiaah 🎶

I’ve got the new Shimano GRX Di2 2x12 speed and it’s very impressive 👌🏼

I’m doing a training camp in Sri Lanka to get some heat training 😂

What width tyres do you recommend?
