Best wishes to all and any affected by the fires in the south west. Sounds pretty savage with areas around Kirup, Balingup and Bridgetown burnt, properties destroyed, stock lost..
Perhaps cycling round Kings park might also prepare for sections of scorched earth on the Great Escapade. Does anyone know if it has affected the route?
The Great Vic ride two years ago went through NE Victoria after massive fires, same with the Tassie ride in 2007 with scorched earth in the NE of the state. Very difficult for the communities involved.
Hope all is well.
Does the name "Pavlov" ring a bell?
