Day 297 | down to a windswept Le Grand Beach: it's great to see the water again
73 km | Heading west total: 14,283 km
Wind, wind, wind.
Battling all the way.
Today seemed all uphill, I didn’t even notice when the road descended.
A tough day when you go just over 9 km/ hour for almost 8 hours. In fact this was the longest and one of the toughest days since I headed over the Brindabella hills in early January.
By the late afternoon I found myself pedalling slowly with no tree in sight to give respite from all that oxygen rushing past.
I looked at the speedo: 7.5 km/ hour.
When I got to the top of a hill, a little inside Cape Le Grand National Park, I found that the trailer tyre had obviously been flat for a long while. No wonder progress was ridiculously slow. That fixed I pumped up the big tyres as well.
Frustrated: yeah, a bit.
It’s how you deal with life’s little difficulties that define you as a person, so they say.
