200km day into WA
After completing a 100km day Jo thought she wanted to try a 200km day, and today offered a perfect opportunity! It was to be a massive 187kms to Border Town, on the border, and an additional 13kms to Eucla WA. Not only that it was cool (and drizly!) plus we would gain 2.5hours with the time change to WA time!
We headed West at our usual early time of 940am (it gets light at 8am!) after pancakes for breakfast and filling up next to the Whale at Nullarbor Road House.
The road closely tracked the ocean with regular cliff viewing Kodak sponsored stops (little camera signs pointing to the areas) where we occasionally took a photo.
At the quarantine station all of us crossed the border together at about 730pm... and then pedaled the final 10+kms into Eucla at dusk in the rain, and arriving there at the respectable time if 530pm WA time :) 201 kms and 7.5hrs of riding.
