An impulsive ride out to Darling with the Nav for breakfast at Brigs Barn. Always in search of new gravel routes, the Nav changed the route a bit and we took the Darling Hills gravel road from the R27 (Grotto bay turnoff) towards Darling. Quite sandy initially (and I came close to having a sand bath) but once through it, very scenic and nice to explore a road not yet ridden.
The rides have become a lot more relaxed as we thankfully don't have to wait for a red snail rider to catch up anymore. A shorter ride than usual but at a nice pace. Weather-wise it was a cool and somewhat cloudy day but thankfully no rain. Perfect riding weather!
Not much more to be said as the pictures below says it all!
