Hey two wheels, not sure why the Fenians is a sensitive subject.
It was over 150 years ago. Please explain.
I have an interest in the escape borne from the stage production of the Catalpa. I think JB O'Reilly (now there's a good irish pub no-ones mentioned) escaped from Bunbury on an american whaler. Arriving in Boston, he raised funds to rescue six of the eight remaining fenians from the Swan River Colony. They escaped on the Catalpa, embarking somewhere near Rockingham. I'm sure Bernard Carney will be able to belt out a few verses of the song in Nannup if you ask him nicely.
As you come up the Old Coast Road, there's a commemorative site to JB O'Reilly, some 3km off the road in the vicinity of Myalup.
I wouldn't mind if the good oil gave an indication of things to see and do enroute for that day. I know it's an alien concept for those hoping to average thirty three and a third km per hour but it is possible to stop the bike and get off at times.
For example apart from Lake and Mammoth tourist caves, CALM maintain an adventure cave south of the cave centre (giant's cave) and admission gives you a hard hat and torch and an invitation to scramble (self guided) through one km of Labyrinth before exiting on the other side of Caves Road. It's only two hundred metres off the road and most likely will be passed by most of the peloton. Likewise the Bridal Cave crater is worth a squizz if you know where to look.
Advice on Wineries, places to swim, cafes on the way (Bow River for example) would make for a memorable day's ride.
The web site only details what's in town and not what's on the way. For me if it's hot, I'll be jumping in the creek at Nornalup, Warren River, Green's Pool, Alexandra Bridge .... Keep Cool
