A slight misty rain to start the morning and dampen the tent, by the time breakfast is done the tent is almost dry for pack up.
A very slight incline over the ride today with last 8km some undulations before we arrive in Katanning. On the way we stop at the impressive town of Woodanalling. There has been some great local work to put the town on the map with plaques showing the sites of old building of years gone by. The town houses a general store, Mens’ Shed, School and CWA. A few new houses indicative of a regeneration of the town.
Onward to Katanning for our first rest day …
Katanning lays claim to being the second most multicultural town in WA, with over 40 nationalities represented among its 4300 people. We are welcomed with the choice of many international cuisine cafes.
At this part of the tour we are joined by more riders as we also say goodbye to others … the interchange as some partners join for the rest day. The Royal Exchange Hotel is busy with most of us eating there tonight.
