Hi there, I’m Brad McCartney from Australia. I set up BikeHikeSafari to document my life as an Adventure Cyclist, Hiker, Photographer and Nature Lover. Somehow it turned into so much more than that and is now a resource for all thing Hiking, Backpacking, Thru Hiking, Bikepacking and Bicycle Touring. With a combination of hiking gear reviews, gear lists, info on hiking trails and bicycle touring destination guides.

I started this website by accident after suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I quit my career as a Police Officer and followed my dream to cycle and hike the most amazing places on the planet and was looking for some way to document my journey.

Depending on where you travel, you may want to pack bug spray, too. In places like Florida and North Carolina, summers get buggy, and you’ll be happy to have packed a spray on nights when you want to sit on the porch or dine outdoors.

MEDIA MENTIONS

As a veteran of the Iraq War, I found myself struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder from which greatly impacted my mental health. In 2016, I came across the film “Wild,” an adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s memoir about healing by hiking the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT).
