Ride from Melbourne to Finke 2022

Planning a route from Melbourne to Finke on a Hema roadmap

I will ride from Melbourne to the Finke Desert Race on Queen’s Birthday long weekend on 10th - 14th, June 2022. It’s a 7500km trip through the Australian outback. It’s my first time out there and I look forward to checking out Uluru and the many National Parks, pubs and people scattered along the way.

The 2017 Honda CRF 250 Rally - 'Sheepskin'

The Honda CRF 250 Rally that was to take me 50,000km from Melbourne to London

Low-cost, modern and reliable, this 157kg dual purpose bike is perfect to go around the world. It's based on the tried and tested Honda CRF250L and has a larger fuel tank, windshield, and LED headlights. It was picked up second-hand for just under $5,000 AUD with 7,000km on the clock.

You can read more about why I chose the Honda CRF250 Rally here.

Riding Melbourne > London in 2020

A map with red string from melbourne to london covers Dylan George Field's bedroom wall

Update: 3/3/2020 I made the uncertain and unfortunate call to cancelled the trip after 6 months of dedicated planning and hard work. This is based on a projected spread of the virus and reports of border closures with Iran and China. I expect the virus to become pandemic with further uncertainty and closures. Catching this early means I can stay at work and keep my house. Thank you all for your support.
