2006 Ulverstone Ulysses AGM Ride - Day 11

 

 

Monday, 13 March 2006: Hobart - Tahune Airwalk - Hobart

It’s raining. Big storm during the night and looks like it will hang about for a while. A quick reschedule conference and we book a bus tour of Hobart and catch a cab into town. Of course by this time the rain has stopped and we get a great tour in bright sunshine and learn heaps about Hobart. That afternoon we head south for a walk on the Tahune Forest Airwalk. A terrific ride through old forests followed by a walk through the treetops with great views of the rivers below.

As we head for the bikes it starts to rain so it’s into the wets again and head back to Hobart. On the way back we stop at a roadside apple stall so Therese can get her fresh Tasmanian apples. They were great too, much better than ones out of cold storage.
