Day 5: The silent ‘h’ in Nhill

0

I set out from Dimboola and before long reached Loch Iel, more commonly known as the Pink Lake. This salt pan is home to a type of algae that reacts to the sun by showing a pink hue, making the entire lake varying shades of pink depending on time of year, sun position, etc. It was very beautiful…

Day 3: Horsham

0

I awoke early this morning to the sound of kookaburras laughing, and then cockatoos having a screaming match, so much better than an alarm clock! I love the bush!! Enjoyed a beautiful sunrise through the gum trees as I packed up camp and had a muesli breakfast. The family I’d met, the two little fellows were up bright and early like me, so we enjoyed breakfast together before I headed back down the gravel track to the highway. Lovely people!

Day 2: The second departure

Slept in slightly, then as I was leaving from home and not coming back, needed to double-check that everything was packed into the trailer and the gear was all ready to go.

Ballarat–Skipton Rail Trail

Smashed out 60 kilometres and had an absolutely beautiful time doing it, riding up the Ballarat–Skipton Rail Trail, a disused railway that’s had its tracks uprooted and fine gravel laid down to provide a pretty wicked little biking/walking/horse trail.

Mt. Buninyong Climb

Headed out to Mt. Buninyong this afternoon for a strong climb, 340 metres in 27ºC, then home along Yankee Flat Road, where very sadly, a kookaburra flew into the path of an oncoming car and was killed.

I commenced training this afternoon, though not yet in the dress, by starting out with some moderate-effort laps of Lake Wendouree in Ballarat, with my goal being a distance of at least 25kms.
