Been some tougher days too, after four month and on the roads on Tasmania I was really tired of everything. Road fatigue and even had thoughts of quitting the cycling. Hard to see the point with continuing. But I'll guess it's normal. Cycling can be like the roads, very undulating, some days are tougher. But guess you need them to really be able to appreciate the rest. Would be very boring if everything always was on the top.
Now I'm looking forward to the next leg from Adelaide to Perth. It will be the first really isolated distances with up to 180 km between the roadhouses. But the cycling will be easy, not so much navigation to do. Mostly one road to follow. I will ride on the Eyre Highway until Balladonia where I will take the Balladonia road via Condingup to Esperance. From Adelaide I will go up to Wallaroo and then take the ferry over to Lucky Bay and then to Port Lincoln and all the way around the coast of Eyre Peninsula. I expect it will take about two months before I'll get to Perth. Will do some cycling around in the South west before heading for Perth.
