Biking in the Land Down Under: A Blogspedition with Aussies & Kiwis

Winter in the northern hemisphere is summer in the southern hemisphere, so what better time to round up the women’s bike blogs from that upside-down United States (if you’re from the U.S.) and its smaller sister?


New Zealand

A couple more Cycle Chic blogs appear but I can’t tell from the blog whether the person who runs it is male or female. Since the Cycle Chic movement was launched by a man I can’t assume. If you happen to know the blogger(s) at Wellington Cycle Chic or Freo Cycle Chic and can confirm authorship, let me know.

  1. Hi Barb, thanks for featuring my blog. When it is winter here I read the northern blogs with envy, I can’t wait for it to warm up here. Now, I can’t wait for it to cool down, it has been a terribly hot summer for us. Thanks again, Vicki

  2. Great compilation of blogs Barb. Makes me feel warm just thinking about cycling Down Under where it’s summer while we freeze in the Northern Hemisphere! I’m from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. I now live in Spokane, WA. Cycling throughout the state of Victoria is fabulous, and for a city of 3 million people, Melbourne is an incredibly bike friendly city. Melbourne is crisscrossed with miles and miles of paved, separated bike paths. Two of my favorite bike paths to cycle whenever I visit are the Yarra River Trail which follows the river towards its source for almost 40 kms (25 miles) from the city center through suburbs, parks and quiet natural areas, and the Bay Trail which runs alongside Port Philip Bay for about 50 kms (35 miles) offering great city views, and beach and bay vistas. It’s easy to rent a bike close to these bike paths, and both are wonderful day rides.
