Both of the above were necessary. The tent plus other stuff dried well. Due to lack of engine power I have decided against attempting the 100k to Robe and several 70-80k stages (with minimal availability of water) after that. The downside is more main road work.
I will instead ride through Naracoorte, Padthaway and Keith to get to Meningie and rejoin my planned route to Adelaide.
So, tomorrow, with a new plan and clean laundry, I head off to Naracoorte.
Born in 1946 I learnt to cycle about 10 years later. On a bike with rods connecting brake levers to the brakes - anyone remember those?
I emigrated to Australia (from the UK) in 1974 and moved to Tasmania in 1984.
Bicycles were in my life for most of that time although sometimes they were replaced by motorised two wheels for a bit more excitement. On reaching 70 I decided to stick to pedal power but in 2019 an electric recumbent made an appearance.
it's now 2023 and I have 3 bikes. 2 e-recumbents and the Brompton.

That’s what Ted thought too. They don’t make much noise and they are bloody ugly!
