Next stop Ballarat (3 October 2013).
My friends Greg Foyster (journalist) and Sophie Chishkovsky (classical cellist, salsa dancing enthusiast and generally passionate person) are serious about simple living, and took a bicycle tour of the length of Eastern Australia to learn about it. Greg has now written a book about the experience: Changing Gears – A Pedal-Powered Detour from the Rat Race, and they’ve begun a 2000 km book tour from Melbourne to Sydney – by bicycle, of course. Accommodation is a tent by the side of the road. See below for dates, or their tour page for the latest.
I know Greg and Sophie from Murundaka co-housing in Melbourne – they’re smart, passionate and compassionate. I’ve got my signed copy of the book and will be reading it soon.
