Launceston 20th April 2013
On my second attempt to leave Launceston my route is better planned. I take a minor road (the old highway) which follows the newer Bass Highway.

It starts with a good climb. I’m already off the bike and pushing in the first kilometre. OH dear!
I push on as there’s no-one else around by the sheep, cattle and rolling hills. So all good. Continue reading
