I recently rode a charity ride from Taronga Zoo, Sydney, to Western Plains Zoo, Dubbo over 3 days in October (read more here).

 

After resting in Dubbo overnight I rode off on my own personal cycling tour from Dubbo to Canberra. It was a small "t" tour, staying in motels and buying my food along the way.

 

 

I was really fortunate that week. The weather was spectacular, nearly cloudless skies the whole week and the country looked fantastic. Green rolling hills, some canola blooming, relatively quiet roads and the tractor behaved itself the whole way.

 

Just riding, eating and sleeping. That's what I call relaxing.

 

Not many words but a bunch more photos can be found here.

Way to go! LBUG was on the Yass to Wee Jasper road the other day and everyone said it was great. What was the road like across to Canberra?

Hi Bob. The road across to Canberra via Uriarra Crossing is good. A bit of a climb up from the Lake Burrinjuck after turning onto Mountain Creek road, a short (1km-ish) section of dirt along the way, and a few km's of dirt again from turnoff  onto Fairlight Rd until the ACT border. A bit of a climb up the 3 sisters after crossing the river at Uriarra Crossing. Great riding country.

I do fancy that bike Boxhead.  Ever I since I saw you with it on the Tour de Hills (or was it Ride to Riverstone?)  I think that's the bike I'll buy (well, in my size) when I want to do a bit of unsupported touring.  Beautiful pic.

Remember anyone coming thru Yass is more than welcome to share a bottle or two before or during a ride.

Those sculptures are brilliant! Especially the hamburger one.
