Today weather was dry with a mix of sunny spells and cloud and temperatures up to 22C. We again had a strong SE wind but not as bad as yesterday with a lot of the time going down or climbing up and sheltered from the wind.
I cooked porridge for the group in the room and I took a last look at the Koalas and Kangaroos. We descended to Lavers Hill village and then a long descent to the coast at Glenaire where The Bend Caf? provided us elevenses.
Then about 8 miles of flatlands before stopping for a picnic lunch in the sun over looking the Valley. Then the big climb of the day headed inland across the Otway National Park. We stopped part way up at the Maits Rest Rainforest Boardwalk and explored some scenic flora.
We continued to the top of the pass at 990ft and just as we started to go down we met Lewis a friend of Martin and Peter T coming up on his bike. He was staying at Apollo Bay for the night and was staying 3 months in Australia. He had arranged to ride with us tomorrow. Then a long descent to the coast at Apollo Bay.
30 miles for the day and 1601 ft of climb.
