7:00 am. All packed up. The intention today is to ride to Mansfield and then onto Whitfield. That would be depending on how I am feeling. Hills and I do not seem to have a working relationship. They take and do not give.
seen quite often on the main roads
Off on the Maroondah hey, and a right into Sandy Creek road. Some say this is a worthwhile detour to avoid the highway to Bonnie Doon, which can be very dangerous. Others say there is nothing wrong with the highway even though trucks and cars woody past. The highway is just fine. All cars and trucks take major detours into opposite lanes to avoid coming close to the CGOAB who is not fond off hills. I felt safe, even on those sections that had no shoulder at all. However, Sandy Creek road is pure delight. A quiet country road with singing birds and chatty locals.It is paved for a good while and then gravel. No problems here, enhanced by the absence of cars, trucks, and hooking utes, although there was one dust-lifting utes that hooned down when I was spotted. Nice.
