We cycled the Fernleigh Track last weekend.

We managed to cycle the entire 30km return journey. Little Eco started the trip on her new Trail-gator bicycle tow bar, but finished it sound asleep (wearing my jacket as pants) on the back of my bike. Notice the forced not-so-enthusiastic smile at the half-way mark?

We had loads of fun and I enjoyed cycling in a car-free environment, so i'm dreaming of cycling every one of the Australian Rail Trails. It looks like there's hundreds of them.

Perhaps there's a Rail Trail or Bike Path near you?

I hope you have an adventurous weekend. If you manage to find a few quiet moments, and feel like some sustainable living inspiration, pop on over to my Inspiring Reads page. I particularly enjoyed Fiona's post on Why cook from scratch? Sarah Wilson's post on Car sharing is to care had me wishing, yet again, that we had a car share scheme like GoGet or Flexicar in Newcastle. I also enjoyed being reminded of why I think it's important to connect with nature each and every day in Nature Therapy at G online.

Remember my Solar kettle? You can win one of your very own by heading on over to Dirtgirlworld on facebook for your chance to win a solar kettle or solar oven. Good luck! Well done dirtgirl headquarters for going off the grid!

Thank you Amanda for the Waste Not Saks. As you can see above, they're getting plenty of use.
