Thank you everybody

Hi Readers,

Many thanks for all your encouragements and congratulations.

The end of the trip was both elating and a bit sad that the journey is over.

Thanks to all those that made this possible, it was a joint effort and I've put a sticker on the bike that says "We crossed the Nullarbor".

Day 23 - the Last Day 70km

North Beach with Indian Ocean behind.

Day 22 Cunderdin - Chidlow 125km

Good tailwinds today. Even though the Great Eastern Highway - Route 94 - became wider and smoother, the trucks no longer moved over, especially when there was an overtaking lane. I was happy to be off that road and on the railtrail.
Camped near Chidlow at Lake Leschanaultia which was a beautiful place to camp.
The rail trail to Midland went through the John Forrest National Park, and was mostly downhill. It was a joy to scoot on that track than ride on the highway.
I set a new speed record of 49km/h downhill back on the highway.

Day 21 Merredin to Cunderdin 108km

Hi,
Just a short message:
Headwinds, good road - wide and smooth.

Will ride from Cunderdin to Northam (56km) , then take the Kep bike track to Woroloo , then the Rail reserves heritage trail to Midland. I'll stay in Midland on the 15th, and make the final dash to the Indian Ocean on the 16th. Barring bottles.
