|Today’s Distance: 44km||Total Distance: 806.4km|
The weather today was perfect with a blue sky and 17 degrees. We cycled along the coast and through the Mimosa Rocks National Park from Tathra to Bermagui. The road was up and down with very little flat riding. On the whole, we enjoyed the hills as our legs are getting fitter and fitter. There was one hill with a short section of gradient at 18% which was very tough. The traffic was light with groups of cars then quiet periods.
We had lunch on a beautiful Cuttagee beach, sitting on the sand and watching the surfers. We arrived in Bermagui at 2pm and after the normal check-in, set up tent and shower, we went for a walk down to the marina and back via the supermarket and pub. This town has a recreational fishing focus with many chartered boats and private boats. We later sat on the headland and watched them all returning. There must have been a huge queue at the boat ramp!
We can hear the surf breaking from the tent, and it will be an early night, as 18% gradients are tough going. Tomorrow we will be biking on the Princess Highway as there are no other options in getting to Narooma.
Highlight of the day: Lunch on the beach.
