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.
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!
