Day 8 | Sand Road to Johanna Beach: and I'm taking it really easy

17 km | Heading west total: 356 km

The name hinted at what was to come, “Sand Road”.

I’m not on the main Great Ocean Road at this point, just travelling parallel on a few lesser used roads. The road might be similarly wiggly-woggly but there isn’t too much traffic of the gawping-tourist-which-side-of-the-road-should-I-be-on type.

There is a lesson learned here: sand does not mix well with a heavily laden bike.

On this trip I’ll keep away from any further sand on the road.

Well, that’s the theory.
