*FU Carona Ride - Murrumbateman Cowra

Post by 1coolbanana » Mon Mar 23, 2020 8:27 pm

With all this talk of viruses, lock downs, social distancing, death, doom and gloom, it was a good time to get away and socially distance ourselves.
Murrumbateman day 1 and onto Cowra day 2 and spend some money in some of our drought and bushfire stricken communities.

Day 1 Home to Murrumbateman

Kris met me on the Bells Line and we caught up with Dave at Mount Vic for a quick (crap) breakfast and coffee.
Heading into the forest south of Oberon and onto Jerrong

Image

Sometimes I get a little bored but its such a good run to head south

Image

Great weather, great riding

Image

And Taralga for lunch

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Great day, great riding, about 500 km
Stayed at Murrumbateman, good night, great accommodation, great company and a good pub.
What more could you ask for :D

Day 2 Murrumbateman to Cowra

Another perfect day :thumb:
Slept like a log last night and raring to go.
Breakfast and a good coffee in the cafe next door and were off
Today would be fairly short at under 400 km but would do a lot of the scenic routes around Wyangala.

How goods this

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The awesome roads just keep coming

Image

And lunch in this great little place n the middle of nowhere called the Tin Hut :D :thumb:
Love spending money in these places and hopefully they will still be here next time.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Also got to meet Fred and Wilma

Image
Image

And more excellent roads

Image

Image

Image

Image

Bugger, I hate tubes and flats :shitfan:
We were on our way in no time

Image

Image

Got to Cowra, all good
But we couldnt get into the pub, new rules, social distancing blah, blah :(
End up eating a crappy Chinese meal instead, oh well, cant complain.
Fantastic days ride

Day 3 Homeward bound about 450 km

Another perfect day out west, just a little cool but was going to warm up fast.
Only two of us today, Dave was having some clutch issues so he headed straight home just in case to avoid any more serious issues.
Had the included breakfast at the motel which was pretty impressive and off we went again.
Great motel, highly recommended

Image

Quickly got out of town and onto the dirt

Image

Image

Quick stop at Wyangala, was heating up so needed to drop a couple layers

Image

And into the hills

Image

Image

Image

Through some of Pensylvania forest, the roads were bad..and out the other side

Image

And back into some beautiful roads

Image

And heading to Oberon for lunch

Image

Image

Image

Some of the left overs of the fires around the mountains

Image

Image

Image

Great company and excellent riding.
Thanks for the company Dave and Kris
Hopefully do this again soon :thumb:
About 1400 km all up.
A fantastic distraction from the real world :thumb:

Great ride. I wonder if my road tyres would cope but the roads look pretty good.

Let me know if I can join in next time (at a distance of course :) )

Cheers,

Geoff
