Who says. The Transport Dept and Wikipedia!
The Dukes Highway joins another highway from NSW together forming 400+ kilometers of single lane highway with regular overtaking lanes. There are also rest areas every 16k and signs warning of fatigue. The issue would seem to be people falling asleep at the wheel.
I spotted cars and people walking on the other side of the road. Jay and his walkers all looked in great spirits. I will look them up when Sue brings the laptop and donate. Perhaps you might think about it too as Melanoma is so prevalent in our sunny climate and breast cancer generally scoops the charity pool.
Tintinara was about half way. So far the ride was OK because the hard shoulder was wide. I had to suck it up and actually ride on it ‘cos the traffic numbers did not allow any carriageway access. There was a lot of shrapnel on the shoulder.
Large nuts, long bolts, various bits of trim and a flame thrower (see above).
Oddly the rest areas did not have toilets.
A good day’s ride even if ridden in a bouncy hard shoulder. The roadside veg kept a side wind from affecting me and that was much appreciated.
The ride ended at the Silos Cafe opposite the grain silos on which Guido Van Helten has painted a series of murals featuring 5 local Primary School children.
We will see more of these on the way home as we will drive the Silos Trail in NSW.
