I am seriously considering riding up to Penrith in Western Sydney this Easter. The point of the trip is the destination, not the journey (unfortunately). I'd like to be able to be there in 1 day, and obviously in 1 piece. Is it better that with that in mind, I just go up the Hume, or can I achieve this with relative ease by going up the coast ? If the coast, what route from Melbourne do you recommend that will deiver me on the same day I leave ? I am wary of the black reputation that our roads have over the Easter period, and so would like place myself in the best possible position of safety, but at least giving myself the chance to enjoy the experience enroute. All CONSTRUCTIVE comments are welcome Cheers Doonks ps/ If I do decide to do the run, anyone else that wants to join me is more than welcome !
