Well,... looks like the bugel has trumpeted and it's very close to say; 'goodbye, so long & thanks for all the fish' to Melbourne & amazing the alpine country.
At this stage I want to stay put in the Melb area to discover more of its great hinterland... The GAR, THE GOR. It's GREAT!! But I don't have what it takes to brave the cold southern winters & keep riding... (I'm soft, I know!).
I need to move onto greener (WARMER) pastures next so I'm starting to make route plans. At the moment all I know is that the mountains are getting too cold (snow is starting to fall) & therefore I'll be heading back north mainly the coastal way.
At this stage looks like Melb departure 24th / 25th May. Getting towards Wooloongong/Sydney area 27th onwards.
I have some of the route legs planned, but others I want/ need some local know-how on what roads/locations best to take.
My unplanned section is between Bega/batemans bay & Port Macquarie NSW.
Any advice on roads / routes and also comfy well priced accommodation from local riders from that region is most welcome!! Or even better.... Come join for a day ride - would be MOST welcome!
