Our plan was then to turn of and cycle the Momerah Range trail which on the map was marked as an unpaved road and I also had read that it was a cycle trail. Was hard to find where the trail began because there was no sign showing where to turn off from the main road. But we found an unmarked road that we assumed to be the Womerah trail. But we had little water left so we decided to continue on Putty road to the next place where we could fill our water tanks.
It was a 20 km ride to Grey gum cafe, where we met some motorcyclist,had a chat with them about our tour and then filled up our water tanks. Pedaled back to the beginning of the Womerah Range trail. We found a nice camping area some hundred meters off Putty road where we could pitch our tent. Some kangaroos jumped away just in front of us and it was the first we saw in Australia. It actually took me almost total a year in Australia before I spotted the first ones...
In Australia they call bicycles for push bikes and we joked that it was a very suitable name as we continue to push our way through the Wollemah range trail. We made 28 km the first day, and camped right on the trail on top of a hill. We were rewarded with a beautiful sunset.
And about 3 Pm we were glad when we finally made it out to the St Albans road after 50 km of off road trail. Took some photos of the sign as a proof of us having made the trip and when we were getting ready again to cycle a car stopped.
It was Barry and his kids and they invited us to stay with them down the valley. We accepted it happily. Had a nice rest there
