Trikers Jen and Tony … the Australian Journey

 UPDATE MAY 2017 – TRIKE UPGRADE FOR AUSTRALIAN TOUR!

Trikers Jen and Tony just got two Greenspeed Magnum trikes for their big tricycle adventure in the outback. Below are the capable Greenspeed trikes, followed by a note from Jen about the trek:

Hi Steve, just an update on ‘Triker Jen‘. I have managed to buy a secondhand Greenspeed Magnum with SRAM Dual Drive. Tony has bought. Magnum XL. These will now be what we will be doing our big outback trip with in July. We believe these will be able to manage the roads and loads we will be taking. No trailer. All will be on our trikes. Our biggest concern is carrying water for three days. We have been experimenting with different bags that we are buying from op shops to set up under our seat area. I have however bought a Sea to Summit 6-litre hydration pack that I hope will fit under my seat. It hasn’t arrived yet. Because I like my seat on the lowest position it doesn’t leave a lot of room. It is fun working all this out though. Tony’s headrest wasn’t comfortable so he made himself one that he said will also do as a pillow when we camp. Keep you posted. I have also set up a blog on WordPress that I will try to keep photos and stories on for our trip. Will pass on the link soon.

    Best wishes on the trek. Tony ought to use a pillow case that can be easily cleaned. Otherwise the “head rest” could get quite sweaty during the rides, making it less desirable at night as a pillow.
