He jumped in front across my path as I became aware of others on both my sides. I slammed on the brakes as the one next to me, surprised, was skidding on its tail to change direction. He jumped away as the others around me dispersed. Then, in the blink of the eye that it took to happen, it was over. I was further down the road, and the kangaroos were gone. Noone was hit.



Today I just didn’t stop cycling. With rain predicted, only getting worse in the coming days, I kept on going while it was dry. Lying, dry in Bungonia, I listen to the constant pitter-patter on the tent. The rain has really started, ending the few hot rest days I have had in Canberra and Batesman Bay with family and friends.

    I can see strong family resemblance here with your uncle(?). Stay dry!

    Kangaroos can be lethal – you were really lucky to escape damage. Good luck in The Wet.
