Coffee-neuring Challenge Cheapskate Iced Coffee at The Pinnacles Desert

Howdy Cycle365life Folks.

My fifth coffeeneuring challenge was at Nambung NP 180kms north of Perth. There was no coffee shop anywhere so I prepared my own brew. Hope you find it interesting

I live in the hills just east of the city of Perth, Western Australia and I've loved cycling all my life, From riding to primary school when I was 8 years old to cycle touring as a grumpy old man. Cycling is freedom on two wheels and I love getting on my bike at any opportunity.

    Wow, fascinating landscape! And hard packed sand – can’t beat that. Must have been a great cycle.

      It was fun cycling around on the sand and get the full outdoors experience ,except when the cars were around, not many people would cycle there I reckon.

    The pinnacles are quite something — varied opinions on how they formed — Im going with the solution of the intervening limestone.
    The settlements are really pretty cool — do people live in them permanently? Im guessing they do.
    The Hobies are something you can either sail and/or paddle? Sounds like a good idea to me if so.
    In the video it looked like some pedal-paddling was going on.
    As for the brown shark repellent — should we let Greg know??
    Did you get to take the bicycle tour?

      The pinnacles certainly are unique. Not as majestic as some of the rock formations in western USA but still worth a trip. Some people do live permanently in the shacks but mostly used for short holidays. The Hobies are powered by sail and pedalling a thing called a mirage drive and you can paddle too if really shallow or obstacles like coral or seaweed. I’m going to expand that page to cover other places I’ve Hobied. I don’t think Greg will be following me around on the Hobie with some plastic bags. Also I am eventually going to do a journal of the cycle trip down south, it went really well.
      Thanks for your interest Rich

      See ya

    Sand and surf; cycling and sailing – what a great day. Glad to see sailing season has begun.

      As it heats up (it was 37 Celsius yesterday) getting out on the water appeals more and more, don’t stop the cycling though. I wonder if some of the dams around you are sailable or canoe-able?
      Hope you’re feeling better

        There are plenty of places to canoe or kayak around here. I can get to the Murray River in less than 1 km. I did think about getting a sit-on-top kayak about 11 months ago, but that involves a new car rack, too. I don’t really want to spend that money at the moment, and I don’t have that much energy back either. But there are definitely plenty of water options if I go that direction at some point!

          Always been tempted to go from the Hume to Goolwa by Hobie or canoe, one day, love the Murray River.

    Hi Janet, Perth’s latitude and climate is very similar to San Diego so the sun’s pretty cruel, especially this time of the year. These hats aren’t very fashionable but they do a great job.

    Yow, what a landscape! They look manmade, like the standing stones in Scotland,
