The road through the mallee was long with lengthy stretches with noone. To pass the time I repeated the town names, over and over again, rolling the r. Lameroo. Pinnaroo. Lameroo. Pinnaroo. I didn’t make it to the Victorian border in one day, but almost. Over 10h30 on the bike.



I learned early on that I should not follow the ‘bike route’ that my app constructed.

Not an easy road

Not an easy road

I’ve had lots of sandy road before in the desert in central Australia, but I don’t need it here. I only had 500m or so of deep sand, but it was a bit of a slog in the sun.

The rest was just keep on pedalling through the quite strong side-wind. Tomorrow Victoria. Yay!

  1. 202km in one day. That’s a hell of a distance. 🙂

  2. It’s nice you are on the road again,I missed you daily news where I got used to for so long.
    And I love Australian

  3. You Lucky guy, Sunny weather, spring in Australia. It’s freezing in Belgium, minus 5 degrees this morning for my daily 25 kilometer bike trip to Brussels, but I enjoyed it as we all enjoy the life of cycling.
