Homeward bound.

Today was a meandering slow ride type of day. I really didnt want to go home. I love being on the road like this. Still, all in good time this is all we shall be doing! As usual I was up early and packed up by 800. I was pretty keen to check out a few spots that I had ridden past before but had never bithered to check out. First up was Hancocks Lookout. With stunning views out over the Flinders, it was well worth the 7km ride to get here!

Such a stunning spot. I could have sat there for hours. But there were too many other places calling our names! I spun Mabel’s tires and headed back down the dirt road and aimed for Mt Remarkable National Park.

After paying our $10 entrance fee, which I am always happy to do, I sat in 1st gear and climbed steep hill after steep hill. The I descended down the other side at breakneck speed. I had to alternate between using my front brake and rear brake as they quickly became hot and useless. More stunning vistas awaited at every turn and every crest. Worth the $10!

As I wandered home I decided to stop off and do a geocache. For those of you who don’t know the fun that is geocaching, well you should check it out! This treasure hunt led me down a rutted steep track through gates and across rocky creek beds, until finally arriving at a sheer cliff face. I eventually found the cache and signed the book.

Then it was back roads and gravel tracks as much as possible before finding myself back in suburbia. Tomorrow I will swap engines around and get ready to head to Jindabyne!
