Melissa Maddison-Stanton introduced us to the wonderful world of women's only mountain biking in Mackay.

Not even her early morning rises for her job as the head of news at a local radio station curbs her enthusiasm or love of getting outdoors on two wheels. Now the mother of two is testing her skills on the mountain bike track and trying her hand at racing. We asked Mel about her adventure journey and to give some tips for anyone wanting to try their hand on a bike.

I met Liz Nash at the Zach Mack Adventure race – a five year old and exciting adventure race spanning 80kms and incorporating mountain bike, kayak, trail run and road cycle through the pristine Pioneer Valley in the Mackay region in Queensland.  Liz was one part of a two woman team and was completing the 12 km trail run and 30km road cycle in succession.
