A few thoughts and ideas

Day 4 – Rest Day

Tuesday is the rest day. And I needed it!

We spend the whole day in Warwick at the showgrounds and in the city itself.

Day 3 – 100km, nearly

It’s 98km from Allora to Warwick across beautiful and diverse countryside. The tour organisers planned the longest day ride for day 3. This makes sense as the rest day is tomorrow on Day 4.

Bicycle Tour Day 2 – Toowoomba to Allora

Today (Sunday) we rode 70km on a rural route from Toowoomba to Allora.

We started just before sunrise at Toowoomba. We ate breakfast and packed up our bags, these were loaded into the trucks along with the mattresses and tents.

Campeasy tents are packed and loaded by the camp volunteers. Meanwhile, personal tent campers pack their own tents and load them onto the trucks.

Bicycle Tour – Day 1

Day 1 of the tour was a grueling circuit of Toowoomba.

The morning was quite pleasant, though a little cool – nothing like the cold that we had in Warwick later though!

A morning coffee was an essential, this is something we decided right at the beginning!  Luckily the coffee wagon was part of the camp set up and even followed us to lunch stops on the way during the 9 days.
