Melbourne to Warragul
Total time: 4hrs 20min, Total distance: 48km, Total calories: 1200
Because of boozy bingo the night before hand, I caught the bus about half way to Warragul.
Also it was a freaking dreary day and I was hung over so no other photos. I stayed the night at a warmshowers hosts place called Tim. He was also a fellow bike tourer and cooked me chicken roast, and I much needed the protein.
Warragul to Gormundale
Total time: 7hrs, Total distance: 77km, Total calories: 1800.
I left town at about 7am.
The lack of back roads and bad weather meant I was on the highway.
However, I couldn’t resist taking a supposed short cut. I then promptly got stuck in mud, had to claw my bike back, got myself and my bike covered in mud and then had to back track a few kilometers.
In a little town called Morwell I stopped for a break and met a retired couple Peter and Sharron. Peter bike toured when he was younger and offered me a place to stay in Gormundale for the night. At about 4pm I got a call from Peter asking if I needed a lift the rest of the way to his and I gladly accepted.
Warragul to Sale
Total time: 50min, Total distance: don’t know, Total calories: 0.
The next day Peter offered to drive me all the way to Sale. I didn’t hesitate to say yes. The weather was miserable.
I still went for a little ride around Sale and explored the wetlands.
My night in Sale I also spent with warmshower hosts John and Trish, they are fellow ike tourers and I had a very pleasant night trading touring stoires.
