Leaving Nambucca Heads at about 7:30 in the morning, after a cold night where the bike was soaked in dew, was not pleasant. The bike was reporting 4 degrees, and it felt colder. I had the down jacket on under the bike jacket and the heaters on full and was still freezing. It didn’t take long for the sun to warm things up a little and by 9am, it was about 12 degrees.
The day was pretty unueventful as I have ridden on these roads before and its all familure. The strange thing about riding was that it was a 600k day and this has become normal. In the “olden days”, ie before this trip, riding 500k was a big day and a ride to newcastle would still be a reasonable ride.
Anyway, I got home at about 2:15pm and are yet to unpack. Its nice to see Rosie (the dog) and Libby (the wife). I walked up to the school to get the girls (with Libby and Rosie) and they were happy I was home too.
Now, its back to a normal life again.
