Day 6 – Grafton To Kyogle – 130 Kms
Click the map to the left and you’ll be taken to the full map for Day 6 at Bikely.com (or click here).
This is the business end of the week. The past five days on the road start to bite.
Some may feel strong and be looking for some hard tempo. Others may be tiring and not so keen to stretch themselves.
It’s up to each individual to do what he or she is comfortable with.
The approach will be, do whatever you’re up for, and if that’s not much, take short turns at the front. Sit-in, if that’s all you are good for. Those who are feeling strong can do the work at the front.
Expect a few will always be keen to push the pace and make some hurt.
It’s flat with some rolling country all the way to Kyogle.
It can be a tough day if we are unlucky with the wind, as it is very exposed.
