Day: 1 Set out from: Sydney Destination: Cooma Time in Saddle: 5 hours 12 minutes Daily distance Covered: 422km Daily fuel Consumed: 20.15L Total Distance: 422km Total Fuel: 20.15L Set out an hour and a half late, but that was to be expected. I left home at 0830 and took the M7 then Hume to Golbourn for my first rest and fill up. I’ve done this leg many times and the weather was crisp and dry. I set off and stopped again at Lake George for some snap shots before heading into Canberra. I stopped for lunch and to buy a paper driving map (turned out to be the best purchase I’ve made) as my phone won’t always have reception and the google maps on that would then be useless. I also picked up a SD card for my camera. I set out on the Monaro Highway after that and found myself enjoying the gentle curves and sweeps it offers. Took some photos and caught up to a couple of other riders on the way to Cooma. We rode together for the last 50km or so. So if you saw me on the way up to Cooma on Easter Monday, thanks for the company.
