What an amazing experience that was! 15 days, 14 on the bike. A mixture of everything Mother Nature could throw at you - heat, rain, wind, hail - not to mention the 8 punctures and two trashed rear tyres.
Didn't cover as many kilometres as I'd set out, a combination of finding unridable roads, opting for safety over kilometres as well as just trying for too much on consecutive solo rides. Still, 1450km was a good result considering 2 and a half days were nearly wiped out.
Thanks for Marckhor and Shag for the company from Warragul, made a huge difference having other riders with me for those final 120-ish kms.
A summary of each day can be found here: http://www.brisbane2melbourne.com/blog.html
as well as photos from each day.

See you on the road soon, gotta make the most of this fitness and weightloss while I can!
