Today the kms started to ramp back up!
Distance: 46 miles / 74kms
A grey and 'freezing' day, the ominous weather reports of torrential rain in the south started to look more likely...
Having followed signs for 5km saying 'scones', I reached Rosie's Cafe at Johns River. It was the perfect rest spot and I could finally stop drooling over the idea of a warm drink & scones.
Maybe I should have started from the cold in Sydney and worked my way back up to the tropics!
I arrived in Taree in the afternoon to a lovely airbnb on the Manning River- the host had made vegetable soup and I then proceeded to sit in the bath eating carrots for about two hours!
Highlights: scones and cycling through the green Manning Valley and first bath of the trip
Lowlights: first day of coat wearing
