Today we left the Princes Highway and took the coastal route along the Sapphire Coast Drive. This is probably the hilliest section we've encountered so far - and the steepest! On one hill, our walking speed was down to 2.5kms an hour - and we had to stop every few metres to recover!
The weather has been perfect - warm and windless, but in
spite of an early 7.30am start, we still didn't arrive at Bermagui until
3.30pm, averaging about 8.5kms an hour!
There were a record number of dead kangaroos on today's section of road, and countless numbers of termite mounds.
There were also several controlled burnoffs in the region resulting in a hazy, smoky day's ride.
Did 66kms today.
