Back on the bike again! If I wanted warm weather, I certainly chose the wrong time of year to do this! However, in keeping with the Fight MND theme, it has certainly been a bit of a Big Freeze these last several days. After paying a quick visit to Macca’s, I set off just after 09:00. The aim – to reach Benalla by around 16:00. I bid farewell to my friend, and set off back over the Murray River. Just across the river is the small town of Wahgunyah.
Somewhere along the C375, I stopped to take a couple of photographs.
For the second photo, I decided to try and do something different. It kind of worked out.
One of a few towns, that I would be passing through, was Glenrowan. This town is notable for being Ned Kelly’s last stand. Ned Kelly was a bushranger, a thief, murderer, and so on.
A cup of tea later, it was time to cover the last 27 km to Benalla. This included the crossing of 11 Mile Creek. A typically Australian name for a creek or river. Thankfully, these names were never converted to metric!
The end of another fantastic day on the road. Tomorrow, it’s another 60 km, and, apart from a bump, it’s flat for most of the day to Shepparton.
