Edwins Bicycle Tour Downunder

Tuesday 23 January. Nhill to Warracknabeal

Today the weather had completely cleared with unbroken clear blue skies and temperatures rising to 28C.

We made use of a convenient system in Australian Motels where they deliver a breakfast to the room. We were able to get an early start by 8.00 and do some riding in the cool early morning. We took C numbered byroads via Jeparit. The roads were across generally flat wheatfield plains. Traffic all day averaged 1 car every 15 minutes.

We made good time on the first 25 miles reaching the small bush town of Jeparit for 10s. This looked like an old west town. We felt like 3 strangers riding into town and heading straight for the Milk Bar!!

During the ride we spotted many parrots in trees alongside the road but no cockatoos as this seemed outside their territory. The dead straight roads had a bend about every 5 miles which were major events.Our picnic lunch was at a special spot, a bend and a junction.

We arrived at Warracknabeal at 1.45 p.m.. I us the Library computer and in the evening we went out for a good Chinese meal.

56 miles for the day and only 442ft of climb. Average speed was 13.1 mph.
