Riding backwards... with the wind behind me :)

A journal entry from: Shaps' Big Bike Ride

After having come back home to Melbourne to get a job for 2009 (hmph, work!), I am now keen to get back on the road to take advantage of my last month of freedom!

Full of Christmas pudding and impending feelings of doom associated with the commitment and responsibility of a full time job (!) I am now riding from Melbourne back up to Sydney, in an effort to complete the eastern states of Australia. However the going is slow with Christmas, Interchange camps, and lazy beach days at Chelsea :) And so I am doing the first few days, to Bairnsdale, in day trips, catching the train up and back along the track. Hooray for Vline :)

 

26 Dec. Dingley - Garfield. 63km (train nearly didnt stop to pick me up due to a man with a gun running around Garfield!)

27 Dec. Garfield - Traralgon. 105km (Oh, I had forgotten how wonderful the quite country roads were :) )

30 Dec. Traralgon -
