Just a heads up:

21 year old Sam Mitchell is about to complete the Canning Stock Route from Halls Creek to Wiluna on a solar powered fat-bike. It is a first.

Encounters with 4x4 travellers note he has won the hearts of many.

Regular updates via satphone on his FB page https://www.facebook.com/solarshift/

I am looking to update my page on CSR cycling events http://canningwalker.com/the-canning-stock-route/recent-adventure-history-1968-today

I have scanned the forum and noted comments about a chap by the name of Ross Gray having apparently cycled the CSR in 1984. I have no record of this. Can anyone help?

There is also talk of a Japanese cyclist earlier.

Molteni was going to do it, but I have spoken to him and he did not in the end.

Humbug and Slaw - I see from a post in 2005, you and two others were going to make an attempt in the '90's but pulled out after Gunbarrel. Are you part of the group that laid a supply line on the CSR but found that a fire destroyed some supplies and due to other issues etc, canned it? Or did you not get onto the CSR at all?

I don't want to leave anyone out. Any help with updates will be much appreciated - but I do need some way of tracking and verifying these events.

Cheers
