Weekday Otways run

Marty and I took a run through the Otways today as we are both on holidays and it was a perfect day for a weekday ride.

Our first stop was the Gellibrand store, where Maria was sporting a Gellibrand “Blues & Blueberry Festival” T-Shirt. This will be a huge gig for a tiny township on 3 March. For details see Moshtix. Here’s a shot of their flyer in the shop window.

We had a great run with very little traffic from Gellibrand to Lavers Hill and the same along the GOR to Apollo Bay. It was too good to be true, and the traffic from Apollo Bay to Forrest was a bit slow.

We pulled in to Forrest microbrewery for a drink (non alcoholic when we’re riding) and a bit more of a chat. Some older fella who had been really flying through the curves in his car insisted we join him. We did so and also bumped into Fiona who we know from our work who was working there.

The weather was perfect for riding with the temp at around 22C and lots of blue sky & beautiful sunshine – 315 kms of “moto-therapy”.

  1. That is a good days run, 300kms is enough to feel at least you have been out. Enjoy your hloidays and when to head over to NZ? Will you be in Auckland at all?

    • G’day Roger. That is a good ride as at least half of it is through the curves. We do that route as our standard sort of run and I often don’t even post about it for fear of repetition.

      We are only going to the South Island – lured by the cheap flights to Christchurch. In fact, I’m going twice – arrived next week for a road trip in a rental car with Mrs T for 8 days and then returning with Marty on 5th Feb (your Waitangi Day holiday) for a motorcycle trip on bikes we’ve hired from Paradise rentals. I will be on a BMW F800GS and Marty’s hired a 650> Don’t ask about how two trips came about, suffice to say that I have a partner who is very supportive of my motorcycling passion.
