Day 5 - Mount Gambier to Port Fairy

Grrrrr. Picked up twice today.

I don't know why, maybe it was the heat, maybe the accumulation of previous days efforts, but I faded really quickly today.

Yesterday I hit an easy rhythym of about 90 cadence and sat 20-22KPH on the flats, sometimes higher.

Today...lower cadence, struggling to maintain what I had, and fading fast.

Beautiful scenery again, the windfarms are worth a look.


Distance: 574.71 (~80Ks, or half of what I should have done) :(
Time: 29.20 (~4 hours)
Average: 19.88 (A slight increase, maybe I was doing better than I thought)
Max: 63.9
Total: 5064 (I rather doubt I've ever done 5000Ks on a bike in a year before)

Oh well, there's always tomorrow. And getting trucked in gave me time for posting these entries and getting some photos of Port Fairy (very pretty place).
