two wheels are best
Early start for me to have breaky with friends at Yinnar South (just east of Mirboo North), before joining everyone at the meet point.
Goodie & I set off on the non-gravel option, and I proceeded to get us lost almost immediately. Just because I went to school here, doesn’t mean my dim brain remembers the roads properly
Not to worry, we actually had a really enjoyable & relaxed ride which we kinda made up as we went along. We found ourselves at Mahers Landing, near Inverloch.
My Grandpa used to take me fishing here when I was little, in a giant tinny with a tiny 100cc Seagull outboard. We caught mullet and flathead and I got to drink black sweet tea from his Thermos -
An awesome boat, combining pedalling with a hull – what more could you want ? . Goodie doesn’t look so convinced -
It comes with GPS, which I need on the Bender today -
Goodie’s Kwaka then needed some TLC :needashot –
More wrong roads on the way back to Koonwarra. But at least they’re picturesque roads -
We caught up with the gravel gang at Koonwarra for lunch.
We were greeted by shady trees -
And Roy the dog –
And a beautiful garden –
And good company –
The ride home with the group was entertaining, and bloody hot . Sir Francis' Scrambler was sometimes running on only one 432.5cc cylinder, which my four 325cc cylinders were grateful for as I was therefore able to keep up. Thanks all !
