Day 37: Hot in Western NSW

We knew today was going to be hot so we packed up early to ride an easy 80km to Balranald. Our minds were focused on the cold drink and ice cream we’d get as a reward for our efforts. The temperature on the GPS hit 42C (in the sun so it would read higher than the air temperature).

The day went quickly as we played games. We arrived at lunch time and had our cold drink and ice cream then we relaxed in air conditioning and watched the Australian motoGP at Philip Island.

It’s going to be hot again tomorrow. We have to ride across the Hay plains 132km so we are working out the best way to approach that.

  2. Hi Guys,

    Just heard about your epic ride across Aus! WOW! I am a Kindergarten Teacher at Hay Public School and note that you are riding through Hay today – 22nd October?? Would love to hear how you are going.

    1. Hi Fiona. We are just leaving Balranald now and look forward to being in Hay in about 8 hours time.

  3. Fantastic! Overcast here and no wind so hopefully a good couple of hours on the road cruising the Hay plains!
    My husbands parents live at Red Hill Station approx. 90km from Balranald. You may see their mail box on the right hand side of the road. My husband, Tom and my son, Will are going to try and be at the mailbox around 1:30 – 2:00 pm to say Hi!
    They might even have a cold drink and ice-block to ease the last 40 km in to Hay…
    Happy riding and hope to meet you soon!
