Colorado Road Trip

Southward journey through NSW

Mountain Biking in NSW

Following a leisurely Christmas break, feet were getting itchy and it was time to pack up the COLORADO and head south. With the bike on the roof, with its’ SCI CON bug protection, and gear in the back we were all ready to set off down the highway.

After and early start our first stop was for breakfast and why not stop at somewhere we always past but not yet visited, THE MACADAMIA CASTLE. As with everything this time of year it was extremely busy and we were prepared for a wait for our bacon and eggs. The stay were friendly, the coffee was a very nice blend and the Bacon and eggs flavoursome.

On our way out Michelle pick up some freshly roasted, flavoured macadamia nuts, delicious!

Back on the road and the traffic was now starting to build and the average speed slowing, especially through the many smaller towns along the route which have not yet been bypassed.

Arriving late afternoon after 10 hours in the car we were happy to stretch the legs and enjoy beautiful TERRIGAL on the Central Coast.

Last job was to check the fuel economy of the COLORADO, 9.5L/100K’s, not bad for an auto with a bike on the roof.

Excellent Fuel Economy
