Nestled in the rugged south-eastern corner of New South Wales, the Snowy Mountains is Australia’s highest mountain range and home to mainland Australia’s highest peak: Mount Kosciuszko. It’s 2,228 vertical metres from sea level to the Kosciuskzo summit, and roughly 220km by road from Australia’s east coast. In late October, three cyclists set out to tackle that journey over two days; to ride from sea to summit. Here’s how the trip unfolded.

A pleasantly cool day in the alpine today with @greatphototutorials and I. Perfect day for a picnic and a top up of fresh alpine drinking water. #Jindabyne…
