Today was visiting some of my favourite places on the Hawkesbury River, and today was navigating my way through the suburbs of Sydney. The loop is now complete. Home – Broken Hill – home.

I followed the bends of the Hawkesbury River for a while, breathing in the nature before plunging into the Sydney traffic.

Approaching Sydney from the north or west always involves cycling on some busy, unpleasant roads. I have found a way out of Sydney heading south, but in other directions, stints on very main roads or freeways are unavoidable. This time I didn’t do too badly. Only once aggressive horn ‘get off the f*ing road!’

My good deed of the day was to save a little turtle sitting in the middle of a busy road, waiting to be squashed.

My Tour de NSW is now complete – 2858km in total. From the green and hilly coast to the desolate and barren outback, there is a lot to see in this beautiful state. Not a bad place to be in lockdown.

    Hi Mathew,

    vielen Dank für deinen wunderbaren Bericht von deiner Reise.
    Es ist für mich immer eine Freude, deine Blogs zu lesen. Ich habe schon deine Reise von Eindhoven nach Adelaide verfolgt und sie erfüllen mich immer mit Fernweh und Sehnsucht nach ähnlichen Abenteuern.

    Vielen Dank nochmal und bleib gesund!

    Marc

    I enjoyed the scenery very much – Your tours are always so interesting to follow!

  5. You should go to the Flinders Ranges. They’re beautiful.

  6. […] The last stretch was through the Hunter Valley and its endless coal mines, and then the familiar territory of the Hawkesbury River. […]
