Hunter Valley and Beyond 2009 - Day 2


Monday, 29 December 2008

We made an early start with the intention of overnighting at Gosford. Refuelled and smoko at Glen Innes then through to Tamworth for lunch. Beautiful day for riding, just enough storm clouds in the air to keep it cool. By the time we leave Musslebrook the cool storm clouds start to threaten rain but we hope to clear the gap and not need wet weather gear. We skirt most of it with the heavy showers still closing in. Opps, a sudden rattle of hail stones gets our attention, and Therese a refreshing ice block to suck, I get a belt on the shoulder and we are past it. Just hit the edge of it thankfully. We run through to Scone with it looking more and more like rain so we put the wets on as we refuel. The wets were not required though and we run on through Singleton, Maitland to Beresfield at the top end of the F3 freeway and decide to stop for the night. If you are down this way and looking for good accommodation at the right price, try the Palm Valley Motel at Beresfield.
