The thumbnail pic is a shot of the Princess of Tasmania before we boarded to come back home.
Check out the Group ride to Tasmania which was an absolute blast from start to finish!
Here is the crew as we waited at Devenport to get back on the Spirit of Tasmania to come home. A lot of happy faces.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable trip with 8 others from our club and loved exploring Tasmania again on bikes and sharing some of our favourite spots with people who hadn’t seen them before.
The scenery as always was spectacular and the weather much more stable than when we had last ridden over here with warm humid weather initially and colder weather as we progressed but very little rain to speak of and it wasn’t a hindrance to the experience.The bikes at the Beaconsfiek
The bikes at the Beaconsfield Mine.
The Gorge at Launceston
We tried to entice Priscilla the pig out of her house to no avail at the Pub in the Paddock at Pyagena
The oldest surviving bridge in Australia at Richmond.
Getting the gear off at Ross so we can explore a little and have some lunch.
Tips to remember for the roads we covered:
The roads we travelled on were all sealed and overall well aligned with good camber. The surface was well maintained and given the wet areas we travelled through there was good stone coverage so nothing too slippery, the only exception being roadwork areas which you would expect. The roads were well signed and mostly traffic stuck to their own side of the road but given many of the country roads are narrow and used by log trucks and those servicing farming areas you need to be aware that there is likely large traffic approaching around any corner.
