It’s forecast to be 39 – 40C today, so I was up early for some riding on one of my favourite roads. Maybe because it’s only a week until Christmas, or maybe because of the weather forecast, the Great Ocean Road was all but deserted! Give it another week and you just wouldn’t bother trying to enjoy a ride there due to the (crazy) traffic volumes.
Cape Patton Lookout. The sun is out and the sky is blue.
The Aire River
Laid to rest in the river.
The GOR without a car in sight!
Why not have another bike pic – it makes me happy!
From Lavers Hill I turned inland to Beach Forest and traveled along Turtons Track to my brunch destination in Forrest. I came close to a head on with another motorcycle on Turtons. Three fellas on big chooky’s – the lead bike on my side of the road!
I was the only customer, however, there were a few people dining across the road at the General Store.
A few kilomteres up the road and it was 30C already so I headed for home. It had been a magnificent start to what I plan to be a brilliant year ahead!
Nice photos Jules! Your comment about not bothering to ride the GOR from next week on is exactly the same where we live. Already noticing the increase in camper vans, many on the wrong side of the road! Take good care of yourself mate and hope that you have an absolutely spectacular 2020!
Best wishes to you and Jennie for the festive season and for 2020. Now stay safe on that hooligan bike of yours!
Looks like a fantastic day out mate and looks like you really enjoyed it. After all the troubles of 2019 I hope 2020 is a much more enjoyable year for you. All the best and Merry Christmas mate.
Merry Christmas to you and your girls Steve. I had a brilliant ride and a wonderful dinner with Tom in Melbourne to finish off the day.
I’m very positive about the future and really looking forward to 2020.
Merry Xmas and while I don’t have 2020 vision (see what I did there….) I think the new year will be an awesome one for ya! Keep your chin up and the rubber down.
Thanks Dave. Merry Christmas to you and your family and best wishes for an awesome 2020. I hope that you have some cycling adventures planned!
