May 28th

Had an ok ride today getting out of Sydney, kind of annoying. I left coogee around 11:30 and got here about 5, no stops for more than 5 mins. Still overall a light day as far as total mileage goes - too much stopping and starting, sidewalk riding, and backtracking. I'm now at royal national park outside of town. Quite a ride getting here - mostly meandering through cities and suburbs while trying to avoid major highways. GPS on my phone, I'm convinced, is the best thing that ever happened to me. More info later; there's no power at the campsite so I didn't want to burn up battery that I'll need to help navigate tomorrow. Holy crap does it get dark here, though. It's 6:45 and basically pitch black. Today was a race for daylight and I can already see this being an issue in the future.


Today's stats:
Total dist: 35.65 mi
Time: 3 hours 26 mins
Avg speed: a whopping 10.36mph
Max speed: 35.66 mph

  1. All these pictures make it seem like the bike is traveling on a whimsical journey through Australia and blogging about it.

    Silly bike, you don't need a tent! You're a bike!
