It may be hump day but that doesn’t mean its all down hill from here. You’ve warmed up after three days in the saddle but there’s no time to relax just yet. Day 4 is your another 150 plus day with a Paris-Roubaix flavour!
After breakfast, we follow Ocean Drive through to Port Macquarie with the South Pacific Ocean crashing onto the beach on your right shoulder. Morning tea is at Settlement Point on the Hastings River after which we load our bikes onto the vehicular ferry for the short shuttle to the northern bank.
Its a pity you haven’t got your mountain bike with you but, never mind: how hard can a bit of dirt road be? We’re soon back on the bitumen and its on to Crescent Head and through Kempsey on the Macleay River to lunch near Clybucca.
The afternoon session takes us through more rolling countryside to Macksville and then we follow the Nambucca River out to the coast at Nambucca Heads.
Dinner tonight and breakfast tomorrow will be at Nambucca RSL (3 Nelson St Nambucca Heads).
