Oz by Bike is a demonstration of how human-powered transport can be used as an alternative to other costly and polluting ways of getting around. Beginning on the 11th February 2006, Anthony Mann will travel 30,000 kms around and throughout Australia to spread his message: that travelling like this is one of the healthiest, most environmentally-friendly and sustainable forms of transport that exists.
Beginning at Australia's southernmost town, Cockle Creek, Tasmania, Oz by Bike will also pedal to the easternmost, northernmost and westernmost corners of the continent, as well as travelling through the centre of the country and its highest and lowest points, from summit to below sea level. The expedition is expected to take approximately 18 months, finishing back in Tasmania in late 2007.
Travelling with Anthony throughout the expedition will be a team of garden gnomes - the first garden gnomes ever to cycle around Australia. Watch out for them as Oz by Bike travels around the country, and be sure to say g'day if you see them passing by!
