Peddler's Fork was our target and it did not disappoint. Only having opened a couple of weeks ago, the stunning 1 foot beams of oak that make up the building with lots of glass make for a perfect setting to relax over a great coffee. Masi's, Colnago's, Eddy Mercxk's bikes grace the walls. Air pump, water and bike racks complete with locks are in the "bike" parking area.
|Some classic bikes adorn the walls, it's almost a shame they aren't available to ride.|
Another couple, Lyn and Brian, were very interested to hear about our adventure, where we were from, and how big are the insects in Australia. Very funny!
It was such a chilled morning, we all agreed the only option was just to roll back to the hotel for lunch, but my legs still wanted more, or perhaps it was just the idea of setting off on my own to find another climb, so with a few directions from Malcolm, I veered off and set to summitting Piuma Rd. Another stunning ascent with views to take your breath away. Again it never really got over 10%, smooth roads, sweeping corners and some very impressive properties with a 10 minute descent back down the mountain to widen the grin.

That's it for now
