Today was a very special day, our last cycling day for a while. Once we got to Batemans Bay Colin and Maureen picked us up for another holiday week in our cycle journey.
The route today was only a short 22 km ride but quite hilly, lots of steep but short ups and downs.
We passed through a number small towns with more lovely beaches! Always lots of beach.
There was a lot more road traffic as we neared civilisation, it does have one big advantage you generally get a cycle path, ours was a nice path for the last 5 km into Batemans Bay.
Batemans Bay is a very nice town, with all the facilities you could want. We had arranged to meet Colin and Maureen at the information centre, shockingly we had a McDonalds coffee while we waited, the first visit to a McDonald’s (and the last unless we are desperate!)
It was lovely to see them both, with their lovely Ute just the right size for 2 bicycles and our accompanying gear.
We caught up with both of our travels over the last few months as we drove back to Colin’s home via a couple of beaches and headlands.
Once back we sampled some home made beer and had a lovely ham supper then after watching some TV had quite an early night in a proper bed.
