|Today’s Distance: 60.4km||Total Distance: 903.5km|
As the title says, today was a mixed bag of riding with the best cycle paths and the Princess Highway.
We started the day in luxury as the Narooma to Dalmeny cycle path ran right past the front of our tent. After crossing the Wagonga Inlet we cycled on the boardwalk then a wonderful wide paved cycle path. The path followed the coast and we past beautiful little beaches. It was a pity it was early in the day as the beaches looked so inviting. We stopped and asked directions from a friendly lady who invited us in for a cup of tea. The cycle path took us a full 10km through Dalmeny and basically joined the Princess Highway.
We then had 35km of biking on the Princess Highway as there is no other option. Mostly the verge was wide, mostly the traffic was considerate, and most of the hills were tame. Nothing much more we can say about biking on the highway other than maybe local councils could work on a cycling alternative.
We arrived in Moruya and picked up the local cycle path from the TAFE into town and had lunch in the park by the river and watched the sea gulls. That was the end of the highway biking for today. After Moruya we cycled the remaining 13km to Broulee on a remarkably flat road for NSW. Broulee is a little town by the beach which looks like a nice place to have a holiday home. We are just passing through and didn’t see much of Broulee.
Highlight of the day: Narooma to Dalmeny cycle path. Nice work organisers!
