Day 6 - Tumbarumba to Jingelic
Distance: 57.3 kms
Elevation: 522 m
Road: On Road, then gravel with corrugations from Tooma (nasty) for 35 kms
Difficulty: Medium - Hard
After a night in the comfort of a bed at a friend's place, pub dinner and a hot shower we're on the road with a smaller entourage. We ride out to Thawra for brunch on ANZAC day and get some hot pides and turkish bread for the road.
We're supposed to cover 120 kms but only managed half that after encountering some nasty gravel uphill roads which were a lot tougher than we'd hoped. By sunset we were looking to make camp on the side of the road anywhere it was flat
End: Somewhere on Mount Clear near Shannons flat
Elevation: 1,694 m
Road quality: On bike paths until Thawra when it turned onto country roads. Then into gravel going into the state forest. Gravel with uphills.
Temperature: 10 degrees C at night
Notes: No water from Thawra on. Must carry all water for 100 kms until Brayshaw's homestead.
