St Marys Loop (2019)
Traversing Black Charlies Opening/ Break Me Neck/ Bust Me Gall hills to Orford then rewarded with wonderful views to Maria Island, then further along Freycinet Peninsula. Up the stunning east coast a little past St Helens then a U-turn and back, up & over the stunning St Marys/ Esk Hwy pass (although dark for most of us) to lovely overnight accommodation at Mariton House #1 Irish Town Road in St Marys where three rooms have been booked and your wonderful support person is waiting. If the wind gods are looking down favorably the relatively flat run along the Fingal Valley passes fast. From there it's an unavoidable drag down the busy Midlands Hwy before turning off at Melton Mowbray, and more climbing to Bothwell before heading home.
Bring your small drop bag to the start. It will only be available at St Marys. We'll have to make arrangements for it's return at the end.
St Marys is the only supported control.
