Day 4: Bridport – Policeman’s Point, Anson Bay: long stage before the storm (98 km)

Hi there! This time I made a short video to sum up most of my day. I hope that you will enjoy it!


​​
It was quite a tough day with nearly half of the distance on gravel roads.Lots of long straight lines with light to moderate head- or crosswind to fight against. Nice views around Mt Cameron and Mt William, some cheese tasting for lunch (surprisingly good!), and a treacherous steep climb before a magnificent view on Anson Bay as a reward. 


On my way to the campground I met fellow bike tourer Mark, from Hobart. He started 10 days ago a big bike tour of Tasmania before moving to Japan with his wife to become a bee keeper. We had a nice conversation, he gave me many valuable advice for the rest of my tour and offered me a bit of delicious whysky, because “never go to the outdoors without a bit of whysky” 😉

  1. Merci pour la carte !!! quel service, on demande, on a ;-)!

    Sympa la vidéo aussi, il semble y a voir beaucoup de vent en effet mais quel superbe lieu de camping: plage et mer … le rêve ..

    Alors, tu as mis les 5 heures prévues par Google ou “did you beat the system” ;-)!??

    Tu sembles rencontrer pas mal de bikers, la Tasmanie est-elle une endroit réputé pour cela?

    bon bain de mer !!!

    1. Le rêve tant qu’il n’y a pas de tempête 😉
      Les prévisions Google sont assez inutiles quand on a un vélo chargé avec des fontes, en fait. Surtout si il y a du vent!
      Je croise pas tellement de cyclistes que ça, mais clairement c’est une destination appropriée pour le vélo, à condition d’avoir de bonnes jambes: les routes sont pas trop fréquentées et il y a énormément de diversité dans les paysages sur une superficie somme toute assez petite.
