The day started with a big media event at 6am, where the organisers of the Long Ride where drumming up some publicity for the event and one of the hotels were putting on a breakfast for all the riders.
Lining up the bikes always commands some attention….
We’re now truly in the tropics! Temperatures are up and today was the first time we had to put on the wet weather gear! I guess they call it rain forest up here for a reason…
However, we were rewarded with one of the nicest motorcycle roads in Queensland with great twisties all the way up into the Tablelands.
Now it’s only 90km to Cairns.
