Sunday 22nd April 2012 – Mittagong to Sydney.

Mittagong to Sydney. 93 miles

No rush today as I knew I didn’t have that far to go to Sydney today and as it turned out it was down hill nearly all the way. Had loads of company with several different people riding along with me, I was even riding along with a judge at one point, thought of giving him my fine to sort out but thought it probably wasn’t a good idea!

Found my way into the city fairly easily, mainly due to the help of other cyclists. Couldn’t go to Jennies, the person I’m staying with as she was working until late, so I thought I’d go and see the bridge and opera house and obviously get my photo taken in front of them!

Done that, time to move on and try and find Jennies! Didn’t get off to the best of starts started heading in the wrong direction, soon realised and turned round not until I’d gone up and down a big hill which I then had to do again but hey ho! After another puncture I then had to ride over the Anzac bridge which I don’t think I was meant to judging by all the cars that kept tooting me! Once I was over the bridge and on the right road it was one straight road all the way to the suburb that Jenny lived in, in theory! The light started to fade so I went to put my lights on, forgetting that the rear had broken and fallen off the other day, managed to reattach it with some cable ties, not sure how long it’ll last but it stayed on long enough to get me here. Got to Jennies at about 7 pm in the end.
