Day 111: Wellstead to Jerramungup

Distance:  84km
Ride time:  4:15hours
Average:  20km/hr

It was windy and a little rainy during the night. The rain stopped before I got up. The wind was still blowing strong from the west.

I made a hot chocolate and porridge with fresh milk for breaky. It was great.

I was also impressed to see my mirror seems well secured. I'm thankful as a helmet mirror gives a much greater view behind than a handlebar mirror which is further from your eyes.

Crossing the Pallinup River.

Beth ArtJust love looking at your flower pictures. I don't think of flowers when considering dry Australia landscapes. You are showing quite a different side of your huge continent.

It's a Chittick.

I got off the road for this wide load.

The landscape was either canola or wheat.

It was a little bit hilly. The tailwind helped a lot. There wasn't much traffic.

Jerramungup is a small town with a few shops including a cafe. I went there for lunch.

After lunch I went to a small garden in town.

It states that Jerramungup is inside the Fitzgerald Biosphere Reserve.

I'm not sure if this really means anything substantial. You can read more here.

I checked into the very quiet caravan park. The caretaker says he gets lots of cyclists through here. I should have asked him how many per year.

A very cheap $15.
