Note to new readers: I am travelling with my bike who’s name is Banjo. I often refer to ‘we’ meaning Banjo and I. ‘We’ have an amazing support team of family, friends, sponsors and folk we meet each day. But it’s still up to ‘us’ to face the challenge and tackle each day one peddle at a time.
It’s 739pm on Wednesday the 2 June 2021.
I’m at the William Creek Hotel eating my first pub meal because I’m huuuuungreeeey!!!!. The oats and seeds were just not going to cut it tonight. I need a hot meal and am saddling up to a burger and chips and salt and tomato sauce. Ooooo happy girl
Today has been the hardest by far. 7 hours ride with corrugated road conditions and a headwind that was super chilly and challenging. With 30km to go it was literally breaking the remaining kms down to 5km at a time with a minty reward and water break in between. I was pretty exhausted at this stage and tried hydrolite and lots of water and snacks but I think I just didn’t have enough fuel on board to work so hard for so long. Hence the indulge tonight!!! Time to calorie up for the next 3 days to Oodnadatta.
However the day started off awesome. I popped into the cafe to buy some the date treats for the day and met some awesome people with the same idea!!! I receive $50 donations each from Angela from Adelaide and Ali From Melbourne
Barb the manager offers a wonderful stay at Coward springs and serves up a variety of pretty delish date treats for her guests
I was very happy to arrive at 430pm this arv.
William Creek has Telstra service so I’ve already had my fix of phone calls with the family that fuels the heart and helps me reset. I was able to share the sunset with them.
The shower was particularly delish getting some hot water onto the shoulders and back and now I’m squeaky clean and feeling human again. Time to finish dinner before they take my plate away and I have to bite the waiters arm off. Talk soon xxx
