This feels too risky to tackle alone...even if I get get through I'd then be starting the Nullarbor in bad state...maybe a damaged bike and exhausted.
So, that was an easy decision in the end. Instead, it's 200km up to Norseman which I can split into 2 easy days, provided I ensure I get there well before the IGA supermarket shuts as a major food shop will be on the cards.
With that all sorted, the bike was next with a clean and check up...Beatrice has been amazing, so very little work was required.
The downside with the change of route plan was that I'd miss seeing Cape Le Grand NP...so I figured I'd try get on a tour out there as a day trip. Its the off season here but in a huge streak of luck I was able to tag on with a group thanks to Jeff at esperanceexplorer.com.au and...well...just wow:
And Jeff also happened to have worked on The Nullarbor so while enjoying some spectacular scenery I was also able to get some great advice.
So, tomorrow morning its time to ride North. Today was brilliant but I am keen to keep moving and not loose momentum.
So far I have cycled 1259km
About 2300km to go.
Thanks all so much for the donations to Cure Cancer Australia...I think I may have to increase the target!!
