The Chief was busy so I did the “lone wolf” and rode to Ruffy. Temperature dropped to 10C as I climbed the Strathbogie Ranges to Highlands, then through open farmland and tall timber to Ruffy. Had a coffee at the busy Ruffy Produce Store.
I dropped down the steep escarpment and ran through a pretty valley to Yarck then on to Yea. The town, and petrol station, were chokkas, so I peered deeply into my confidence and rode on to Seymour for fuel. No sweat. Home via Pyalong.
