Mawson: Days Three/Four - Burra beckons

The ride from Tanunda to Riverton was competed under happier skies. So many highlights! The fast, marginally dangerous passage just out of Nuriootpa was a hoot. The beautiful landscape between there and Kapunda was enjoyable for different reasons. The technical, scary ups and downs just out of Kapunda, the rocky creek bed climbs and the fantastic sweeping downhills into Riverton made the day a beauty.
Riverton was cold and misty for the start of day four. Riding through the fog as we made our way to Auburn, cycling meditation en route to Clare via the Riesling Trail, and the climb up Camel Hump followed by the huge descent all helped to make the ride memorable. Not to mention the great up & down section on the way into Burra. I am feeling good. I have done loads of jobs this afternoon (washing etc) and it is a rest day tomorrow!
