Travelling Day - Three old blokes tackle the Tasmania Trail - CycleBlaze

March 11, 2022

Travelling Day

After months of planning, practice rides,  multiple internet  purchases of bike related paraphernalia (that I already had but weighed 1.6 grams less than my perfectly good existing item), today is departure day.

Sunny skies after all the rain and no wind meant perfectly smooth flying conditions. We landed at Launceston by lunchtime and then spent almost 2 hours trying to get a maxi taxi that was promised in 20 minutes. We ended up on an airport shuttle bus and we’re the last group dropped off at our air bnb in Invermay, just to the north of Lonny. 

Some final essential purchases of jigsaw puzzles at the airport terminal

The afternoons chore was to get the bikes set up before the Raiders game at 6pm.

It took Steve and Pete about an hour and a half to assemble their bikes.

The Raiders fall over the line after almost blowing a 50 point half time lead, I manage a negative RAT test after convincing myself I had Covid and we have a superb meal of blue eye trevally washed down with a Tasmanian Pinot. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Our humble dining venue for the night.
