Well, there's no point talking about it, so this morning I woke early and headed out with the express purpose of riding 1,000kms in the day. What I found out is that it's a lot easier to do if you are going somewhere, rather than just riding around racking up the miles.... I left home at 4:50AM, rugged up and ready, made my first stop for fuel at Kulnurra, coffee and raisin toast and the likeable Jerry took my picture to add to the massive Hall of Fame gallery in front of the shop. 202 kms Again wondering as the weather warmed how people manage to crash at Lemming Corner, and with another fun-filled blast through the Ten Mile on the Putty, I stopped next at Wilberforce. 226kms It was around about there that I started to run out of ideas..... Next stop was at Nowra, reached via the Oaks Road, Picton, Mittagong, Fitzroy Falls, Kangaroo Valley and Cambewarra Mountain. 198 kms Now totally bereft of ideas, and with the spring sun scampering rapidly towards the horizon, I rode out to Nerriga and back to Nowra, then home, arriving at 5:10 pm via Kiama, and the Jamberoo Road. 212 kms I can't help thinking that if I had set out to ride to a destination 1,000kms away the whole process would have been more straight-forward. That said, I DID manage to seek out as much twisty stuff as I could, so although the goal was not reached, I DID have a great ride .
