Where I stayed
Norseman Recreation Centre
After about 100 kms, we stopped again for a pit stop at the Widgiemooltha Roadhouse, where Jim shouted us coffee, hot chocolate or tea. This lifted our spirits, and with the rain clearing, we headed off with a more positive outlook.
Our lunch stop was even better, with left over sausages, buns, pasta, salad and more - delicious! And Robert had a warm fire going to warm up and dry out
During this next stage, I gained the title (given by myself before someone else labeled me) of WBG - weak bladder Gazza! But there were a few guys who were thankful of the 25 kms pit stops - the cold weather and plenty of fluid during the ride made it a necessity.
We made Norseman (named after a horse) at 4.30 pm - a slow day, but the second half being quite enjoyable. We set up in the squash courts at the Rec Centre and had a large and tasty meal at the Norseman Miners Club (we will go there again tomorrow night!).
Rest day tomorrow - will be good to rest, do the washing, clean the bikes etc.
First leg done - 721 kms in 5 days.
