Day 4 – Deloraine to Devonport

One of the highlights of today was the successfully transportation of a Roma tomato in the handlebar bag (Captain’s brainwave). We bought rolls and kept some lettuce from last night’s dinner to eat for lunch somewhere along the way. The precious tomato was held securely and was a delicious complement.

We had lots of enjoyable flattish riding today, although, true to form, Tassie threw in some more hills for us as we made our way to the coast and the ferry.

The biggest highlight has to be our tent site! We booked a powered tent site with an ensuite and man, is it good! The only downfall was the inability to get from the tent to the ensuite in appropriate garb!

Our tuna curry dinner went down nicely and sleep time beckons by 7:30, ready for our ‘greatly taxing’ 9 hour boat trip tomorrow.

  1. I enjoyed the 1st 4 days of your trip. We are based in Sydney and will be cycling the Tasmanian Trail in Feb, from Devonport to Dover. I like your story of the single tomato. The last time we cycled Tas my wife bought a box of apples at an orchid! I don’t know what she was thinking.
    Cheers Ian


    • Hi Ian, I’m glad you have been enjoying our trip, we certainly are! A few days in the big smoke with the rellies is slowing us down though. Not sure we’ll still be able to pedal with all the great eating and fun we have been having! Your Tassie Trail trip in Feb sounds great! We will be interested to hear how it goes as we have not done that trip.
