A Pictorial story of my trip from Melbourne to Canberra after the Masters Track Nationals 2010. This was to be the second leg of the trip in 2009, after the 2009 Masters Track Nationals in Tasmania. My frame broke last year, aborting the trip. This time I made it all the way back home.

Binalong, NSW on the way back into Yass. Worth a visit

Did not quite make it!

Original idea was to ride all the way into Canberra, become way to much, got dark and Paul Conner offered to pick me up on the way through on his trip back from Yackandandah
