Day 835: Cann River – Eden

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on Jan - 20 - 2013

Distance: 123.68 km
Ridetime: 6:18:29
Average: 19.6 km/h
Max speed: 54.4 km/h
Total distance: 17578 km

In the morning I had only been cycling 25 km when I met Janette and Alan The couple, who looked like their where in their 40′s but where actually over 60, had set out on a mission to run a marathon every single day in 2013. I met them just as they had finished their 42 km for the day.

As if running 365 marathons in a year was not challenging enough the couple are also 100% vegans and eat only fruit and vegetables. Wow!

The cycling today was very hilly. Just after I met Janette and Alan I was crossing the border into New South Wales, my 4th Australian state. Sydney is getting closer!

During the day I saw that the bush fire risk had been downgraded to Normal. After I had put up my tent for the night I realized why. It started to rain and continued the whole night.
