SOME TASSIE WINTER KMS / CAN’T BAG TASSIE WEATHER!

So from our “Le TOUR DE BOAGS COUNTRY” post you can see we snuck south to Tassie for a wee bit to escape a grey ole Melbourne and find some glorious blue sky winter goodness. We did a few Km’s whilst there and of the KMs the highlights included climbing Ben Lomond, MT Wellington, and a little cruise on the NORTH-SOUTH TRACK. If your down south and you get a chance to do these………do! They really did leave us grinning ear to ear!

Below are some of our fav shots………..

Heading back inland and trying to get to BenLomond….. Ren says “Lets go this way” …….. it started well with the fastest hard packed gravel……..but we were soon riding up and down a four wheel drive track with some 20+ % climbing…….

Climbing BenLomond was one of the highlights of the trip, its 22km gravel and rather step, but its well worth it, especially on a clear day.

We also had a little climb of Cradle Mountain, sensational day with endless views, left the bikes at the bottom for this one, the rocks were just a bit to big!

So its fair to say you can’t bag Tassies weather…… well we cant off the back of weeks of the above……see you next winter Tassie!
