I rode from bendigo to Macedon today, 55 km from Melb. Very cold riding and in Vic this afternoon there were wind gusts at 100 km/hr….incredible…one gust hit me and almost blew me off my bike!
Anyway…a huge thank you to John and Samantha at the Black Forest Motel in Macedon for a free room for the night…johns wife has worked in Mongolia as a midwife helping the locals learn safer/better ways to deliver babies…even went into the Gobi dessert. Her work with the locals has decreased infant mortality rates…very impressive indeed.
Total distance so far is 12500 kms.
Will be in Melb around 1pm. Will be home in Nowra next Sat, 9th August, riding into the sleep out for the homeless at the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre. My arrival time will be 6pm. Everyone is welcome to attend….there will be food and drinks as part of the sleep out event, hosted by one of my major sponsors, Ultimate Cycles, Nowra….Cu there!
Getting excited thinking about home.
If anyone wants to join me for the last 20 kms or so of my ride you will be most welcome. Email me your interest and I will post a meeting place next week and we can ride into the Shoalhaven Centre together 🙂
