I had a decision to make: push my unpractised body hard and make it to Kalgoorlie where a couch and a hot shower awaited me, or just take it easy and camp in the bush again before rolling into town tomorrow. When my friend mentioned she was heading to the pub tonight, the promise of a cold beer proved too strong an influence. It was with irritated legs that I made it to Kalgoorlie just before dark. I annoyingly had to skip five kilometres along the way when road workers forced me to put my bike on the back of a ute and take me outside their work area for ‘safety reasons’.
