I'm in Bathurst, NSW today for a friend's birthday. 200 kilometres west of Sydney. That's a 2.5 hour drive without traffic. Tip: no traffic on the road when you leave at 5:00 am.
Before getting to Bathurst I'd done my google research and had saved a few routes. But as I was driving in I noticed a pathway along the river and decided to be adventurous and try my luck with a random ride. Random Rides for the win!
