Day 3 riding
Bill decided to head back home. He gave lots of suggestions on routes for the way north to meet up with Ian. He also gave me a map of the north coast of
South Wales. I was glad to have him leading the way for the first few days, especially since I'm not quite used to riding on the left side of the road. Thanks, Bill. Get home safely and keep the shiny side up!
I took a short walk from the cabin at
down to the beach. Urunga Heads
Fishermen and tourists (and me) were enjoying a quiet morning along Urunga Lagoon Footbridge boardwalk. It’s a nice long path that extends over the Kalang and
Bellinger Rivers all the way out to .
There’s also an interpretive section
that branches off to the lagoon. Urunga
It was nice, leisurely riding from Urunga up
Pacific Highway to . I turned inland toward Coramba. Something about this bridge near Glenreagh
caught my eye. Coffs Harbor
I stopped for fuel in Casino even though the tank still had more than ¼ remaining. I need to get some sense of the distances I can go so I know if I need to buy a fuel can.
I also found a café with WiFi and was able to make a reservation at the YHA (hostel) in
. (Not quite enough time for updating the blog, though. Sorry, folks. I'll do my best to catch up.) Byron
So far, today’s been pretty close to perfect - great weather, pretty goad road conditions (some construction) and moderate truck traffic. I hope my luck continues to hold.
