TRIM THE CAT lll Day 5
A lovely country ride.
Best done in Spring.
The canter with a bit more - Gunning Crookwell Goulburn and Windellema.
Starting on the outskirts of Midland, you may just glimpse the Velodome as you roll out! First part of ride is flat though the back of the Swan Vally & to Gin Gin. The undulations now start, but nothing to long. Onto the ride name, most Northly point of the ride we then turn south heading to Toodyay via Bindi Bindi-Toodyay Rd. This road takes you back down to the river level at Toodyay but its not all downhill! Bakery,Cafes or pub await you at Toodyay to replenish your energy levels, which your need before the climb at Hoddys Well! Small section on GEH before back on quiet roads to Chidlow via Wundowie/Wooroloo. Undulating hills, which are good as they give your butt a rest, as we make our way through Darlington & over GEH & back roads to the finish
Water should be available at Brighton, Buckland, Orford, Triabunna, Swansea. The IGA shop at Swansea generally opens at 7AM.It is a beautiful ride along the east coast with great views of Maria Island, Freycinet Peninsula and Schouten Island. Traffic is generally light except during school holidays. There is little sealed shoulder and only one lane each way.Checkpoints:
