Scoot through the Golden Triangle

Sunny but cold (10C).  I was on the road by 0930 and filled up at Kyneton.  Up the old Calder Highway to Maldon for a coffee.

Parking on the footpath is permitted in Victoria – very civilised.

Then a quick run up to Laancoorie:

Cut across to Dunolly then down to Maryborough, taking the truck bypass to Carisbrook.  Nice run down to Clunes.  Quite a picturesque road with old gold mines, abandoned stone buildings, good road surface and sweepers along the valley.  Into Clunes for a leak and another coffee:

Then a fast run through Smeaton to Blampied

and Daylesford – packed as usual – and onto Tylden and Carlsruhe ( named by the first settler there after his hometown in Germany.  Here’s a pic looking over the Calder Freeway towards the Jim Jim (on the horizon):

Then home, clean the bike and have a Coopers!
