So that’s one day down, only 6 to go!
After breakfast, we’ll take the cycleway to cross the bridge over Swansea Channel before linking back up with our support vehicle. The ride takes us around the beautiful foreshore of Lake Macquarie and then through the suburbs of Newcastle. It’s mostly flat but we travel through built up areas and can expect lots of traffic through to morning tea at Hexham.
Care is needed crossing the bridge over the Hunter River but then its a pretty fast run along the highway to our lunch stop on the banks of the Karuah River with good dual carriageway all the way from Raymond Terrace.
After lunch, expect another fast run in to camp at Bulahdelah.
Dinner tonight and breakfast tomorrow morning will be at Bulahdelah Bowling Club (Jackson Street Bulahdelah).
