Day 2 - Little Luxuries

Tristan stopped riding 50km east of Balranald and we drove into town to find somewhere dry and warm to stay for the night – a cabin! Our biggest luxury for the trip! We met Faye and Max, relatives of Pauline, Kelly and Lauren (the hitch hiker!) in town, who fussed over us with hot soup and cuppas! Thank you! This was the end of the line for Lauren who left with Faye and Max for a real holiday and a real bed!

A tough day for Tristan today. Didn’t quite get the 400km target but he did have to contend with all that evil weather and he was definitely feeling the lack of sleep! Plus he had to make a very sticky and stubborn tyre change for his Zipp wheel before bed! Phewf!
