I didn't bring warm gloves so if you plan to cycle this road please make sure that you have warm cycle gloves and shoes. It would make the trip much more enjoyable. But after a couple of hours the temperature had slowly raised to around 10 degrees and I could get my hands warm again. Crossed a pass of 1317 meters and could then for the first time see the snow on the mountains in the horizon.
From Thredbo that is located about 1300 m the road continued to climb. Very gentle climb so easy cycling and at Dead horse gap you reached the top of 1580 m. From there you had a long and winding descent. A very funny and easy cycling.
At Geehi the descent ended and I stayed there at Geehi flats camping area. It's on the banks of the Swampy plains river and with views over a big grassy area with the mountains in the background. Really a stunning camp ground. The camping area is really big and you have your own private place. But there were also a lot of flies there now in November.
Followed the Apine way to Corryong where I took the Benambra-Corryong road to Omeo. A trip of around 136 km of which 67 km is gravel but it's a very well maintained road so no problem cycling there. There are a long climb over a pass of 1370 m. When I cycled it was raining and temperature around 5-6 degrees. So was pretty cold, sky was all grey all the time. Was a short break in the raining on late afternoon and I used it to put up my tent next to the road. No traffic so no problem. It was about 1310 meter so the following day I had mostly downhill to Omeo.
The rain continued all day and was really heavy before Omeo. So I took shelter in the BBQ area in a park.
