The first puncture! Lakes Entrance to Orbost

We set off at 7.40am on a sunny, windless day. Hit hills immediately and then had a roller coaster ride of hills through numerous state forests.
Around 15kms from Orbost, my bike felt sluggish. Del checked it for punctures. Sure enough, my back tyre was flat. Del set to and quickly replaced the tube. The rest of the run to Orbost was flat and easy.
Orbost is a small, sleepy town on the legendary Snowy River.

Today's hills mark the beginning of our traverse of The Great Dividing Range.
Tomorrow will be a big day. Early bed and energy foods are definitely on the cards.

Did 58kms today.
