Sunday 4th November 2012 Weather – absolutely perfect. Set off from home and head to Queenscliff to catch the ferry to Sorrento. I was a bit anxious about riding on the painted steel ramp so just took it easy and was directed to a spot right at the front near the stairs. I took the opportunity to take a photo for the riding game thread, but unfortunately by the time I got around to uploading the photos I was beaten to the punch. Oh well, maybe the next challenge would be mine. There was a group of 6 bikes on the ferry as well, they were just going over for the day, I told them about my plans, and they wished me a safe journey. The camaraderie of the 2 wheel fraternity never ceases to amaze me, Got to Sorrento and headed down to Point Nepean for a look, then turned around and on to Flinders via CapeSchanck. Stopped at Flinders for an early lunch, then via Red Hill to Arthurs Seat. The ride down through Arthurs Seat reminded me of those motorcycle fail videos where the camber and sharpness of the turns makes for some amusing crash viewing. Decided I wasn’t going to join that gang, so took it gently. I was concentrating so hard I was down the bottom before I realised I hadn’t got a photo, maybe next time. I did see the views as I was coming into some corners, and they were really something. The plan on this trip is to avoid highways where possible so the next part of the journey took me through Tyabb & Tooradin, but couldn’t avoid a stretch on the Bass highway. Turned off and went down to CapePaterson. Had afternoon tea there, and continued on along Surf Parade following the coastline and then back up towards Inverloch. There was a bit of traffic on the South Gippsland Highway, and road was a bit rough in patches. Since I was making good time I then took the Koonwarra-Meeniyan Road to get to my first stop for the night. Total for the day 330kms – easy riding and great views.
