Biking around Australia

<<   July


July 3rd, 2002

Gladstone to Rockhampton, QLD
118.52 km (73.5 mi)

Headed out of Gladstone and on up to Rockhampton. Was listening to the radio and they said there was a small chance Steve Fawcett the round the world balloon guy might land near Rockhampton....I was thinking that would be a little funny if he landed somewhere near me.

Day was pretty uneventful overall. I passed 23.5 degrees south and couldn't figure out where the Tropic of Capricorn. Dunno if the GPS was off or what, because I passed the offical spot a good ways down...right next to the visitors center. Oh well.

Was very tired when I pulled into the hostel. I found my room and went in. There was a guy and a girl cuddled together on one is the LAST thing I wanted to think about after a long day of biking.
