Coober Pedy

Posted in Diary on May 5, 2009 by harydial

Hello Everyone,

We are at Coober Pedy at the moment. Hmm come to think of it its been 37 days on the bicycle saddle. Well so far I think I have underestimate the distance. To date we have rode about 2500km. Its still about 1500km to ride from Coober Pedy-Uluru-Alice Springs.

There has been too many experiences since the last post. But the main thing is we are well. Planning a rest day at Coober Pedy to do some housekeeping stuff and rest the legs and the mind a bit. We are officially in the outback since last week. Average temperature in the desert area is about 33-34 degrees max. So we are coping well.

To date we rode through the Flinders Range doing it through the part of The Mawson Trail. Breaking a few spokes in between. We then rode a part of the Oodanatta Track to Coober Pedy.

From Coober Pedy onwards, it would be another 4-5 days before we get to Northern Territory through the Stuart Highway.
