Crikey, Team Voodoo Lounge hit North Queensland this week. Step aside Hoff, Voodoo has it covered between the flags at 4 Mile Beach.
The shopping baskets aren’t seen a lot in the pro peloton yet, but I think the cunning Aussies could be on to something.
A little later… after a spin down 4 Mile Beach (as used by Kingsford Smith for landing on first airmail run to Papua New Guinea) we’re in croc country. Luckily I had my trusty Malvern Star go-anywhere rental bike. Note bike stand aided by use of helmet to combat quick-sand.
The mangroves were creepy; while I didn’t see the crocs, some of the skid-marks were scarier than Dave’s laundry basket.
Then the tide tried to grab my Malvern Star.
I had to get to high land, so it was back up the beach and the highest hill around (which isn’t saying a great deal as the place is essentially flat).
About 27 deg here, with moderate humidity but nothing too bad. Tough life.
