Day 104 Fini

Route details: Babinda – Cairns 26/9
60Kms; 3hr 45m

Having had a nice relaxing day in the Babinda park yesterday, we were revitalised to make ‘one last big effort’ and ‘push on’ to ‘knock the bastard off’, as it were.  We decided that even though it would be the end of the ride which was a sad thought we would ride to Cairns today and then come up with a new plan.

The day turned out to be a cracker and I just had to get some pics of the brilliantly clear water in the streams we passed.

And then the countdown was on, C50 = 50Kms to Cairns.

C40

Mt Walsh 997m high seemed to have landed on the C30 sign as I did see one.

C20

Things were heating up now!  Smoking even.

And at C10 rural Queensland had all of a sudden turned back into a metropolis.

We had finally arrived, the war memorial outside the Carins RSL, 3200kms and 104 days from Sydney all done by bike, with the addition of 120kms by train to get through Brisbane which isn’t that bike friendly in our view.

In true Kiwi fashion it was time for a haka!

Whiti te rā, hī! The sun shines!

So it would be off to the RSL for a celebration and to work out where to next.  Most likely swimming with the sharks. :)
