Cycling in Sydney Australia
DAY ONE LAKES ENTRANCE TO BRUTHEN
Day one dawned calm and clear, a contrast to last year when a monumental storm left 200 school kids in 2 metres of water. Barely out of Lakes Entrance we faced first hill but Malvern handled herself well. Gear changes were like a knife through butter. Rolling hills through pretty farming country to the beautiful lakeside town of Metong. Good coffee and a chance to share my salad roll with the black swans. Temperature soared and the hills either got bigger or seemed bigger. A beautiful flat section took us alongside the Tambo River where we spotted a Vietnamese couple in conical hats, deck chairs and a beer quietly fishing from the bank.
My speed was slow. Definitely would have benefited from more training. But I am doing the hills and the distance and coping with the heat. Very difficult to post blog with 2000 school kids all updating Facebook but hopefully more tomorrow.
