The road between Braidwood and Nerriga is sealed except for 2 small bits. One of those bits is currently being sealed and the second only took about 5 minutes to pass. The good thing (especially on a bike) is that the road verges are clear of vegetation so less likely to be ambushed by a roo. AND the extra good news is Nerriga now has clean new Public Toilets.
The sad news was just after Nerriga - the forests there bore the brunt of the 2020 bushfires. They are regenerating but the view did take my breath away. On to Huskisson, The Jervis Bay Club was doing a roaring trade but the queue for lunch was just not moving - grabbed a toasted sanga from the internal cafe then went off to the nearby park to find my 3,000th geocache - Yay me
Refueled and hit the road, this time to do the Tarago option. The wind was getting stronger and I was getting tireder. This way is 12km shorter but it is less scenic, the forest is so close to the road. Long stretches of 80kph limits, I think I'll stick to the other way. So all up, a tad over 400km and 6 hours in the saddle. I will sleep well tonight!
