Afternoon on the Great Ocean Road


Yesterday Steve and I took an afternoon run from his place near Colac through the Otways to Skene’s Creek, then along the GOR to Lorne, then home through the hills via Dean’s Marsh.

Pulled up past Forrest for me to swap from my dark visor. It was quite overcast & gloomy under the canopy of the trees, although the pic doesn’t show it. Here’s Steve by my VFR.

We pulled in at Cape Patton to take in the views and have a chat. The sun had come out and it was really nice riding weather.

We had an uninterrupted run from Lorne up through the twisties to Dean’s Marsh, where we went our separate ways .

All up a grand afternoon’s riding in one of the most scenic parts of Victoria.

Weekday ride

We were on strike today so no work for us. It was the perfect opportunity to ride the Otways & Great Ocean Road with very little traffic & reasonable weather before winter sets in.

It was so quiet – virtually no traffic at all. Here’s the view looking northwards.
