Day 832: Warragul – Stratford

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on Jan - 17 - 2013

Distance: 151.61 km
Ridetime: 5:54:31
Average: 25.7 km/h
Max speed: 47.3 km/h
Total distance: 17242 km

In the morning I was happy to confirm that my tent was still waterproof. It had rained quite a bit in the night, but everything inside was still dry.

After a few hours on the road the last clouds disappeared and I was once again enjoying the sunshine. I was also enjoying a strong tail wind that pushed me forward at sometimes close to 30 km/h.

After the Melbourne break I was somewhat behind on my blog updates. I decided to stop in every McDonald’s I passed and try to make a few updates. I passed 3 today. What McDonald’s has that I like is 0.30$ icecream cones :-) What it misses is power plugs for the laptop, so at the end of the day I had to relocate here.

With the strong tail wind the 152 km went by without much of an effort. If I had not stopped for several hours during the day I think this could easily have been a 200 km day. Maybe tomorrow :-)
