Latte levels replenished, it was time to hop to.

One of these is not like the others...



Up the hill towards Licola.

We cut across towards the Thompson Dam.





Doug was getting twitchy about the thought of missing happy hour at pub so we took the bitumen from Thompson Dam to Rawson to Tyers and Traralgon before starting the climb towards the Grand Ridge Road.



A bitumen run down Tara Valley Rd and into Yarram for the night.

Highly recommend the Commercial Hotel in Yarram $60 a night motel units (which sport authentic early 1960s bedding and décor), super friendly staff, a happy hour that keeps even Doug smiling and good food (when it eventually arrives).

Day 2: Make it up as we go along.

Start with a dirt climb back to the Grand Ridge Road.







Then climb down.





The climb up.

Stop when lost. Take photos of your bike.







Consult Mr Fish's GPS and follow the suggested route.



Swear at Mr Fish's GPS. Stop at first opening. U-turn.

We made bitumen at Boolara then raced to the Mirboo North bakery to see if the best items were still kept on the bottom shelf.
