Mike did not have a particularly good day finding it hard to balance the bike between a wind on the left and a negative camber pushing the bike into the roadway. We were not eating enough during the ride and Mike was almost bonking as we reached Mulwala where Mary went into the local IGA supermarket for a food top up. Eventually we reached the bridge crossing Lake Mulwala formed by damming The Murray.

The bridge was two narrow lanes but fortunately there was a segregated footpath which we walked over arriving at the Information Centre. We caused quite a stir with our tandem and we were asked to speak on a very short video recorded on a smart phone which the staff member planned to put up on the Information Centre facebook page.

Our accommodation at the Yarrawonga Holiday Park was about one km down the road. Wifi available but dropped out frequently. We visited the Yarrawonga IGA for some microwave dinners for tonight's meal.
