Road Closed - Southern Ocean East Road - {Day 04-06} by Andrew Priest (Aushiker), on Flickr

Day 4: Esperance to Albany: The Unconventional Ride. 750 km in 10 days. Well the sign on the Southern Ocean East Road did say it was closed. Of course I had to ignore it; whoops. Swimming with tiger snakes and a fatbike where not quite what I had in mind for this ride : The outcome? A detour of some 42 kilometres.

Hamersley Inlet Link Trail - {Day 06-08} by Andrew Priest (Aushiker), on Flickr

Day 6: Esperance to Albany: The Unconventional Ride. 750 km in 10 days. To reach the Hakea Trail proper one must first get to the beach at the inlet. Today there is a trail to provide, eh, easy access. When I walked this area in 2008 we were on our hands and knees with backpacks getting through the bush to the beach! Oh how things have changed. This is however really a walking trail and not at all ideal for bicycles: read log steps and more steps and more steps.

The Final 20 km {Day 11-20} by Andrew Priest (Aushiker), on Flickr

Day 11: Esperance to Albany: The Unconventional Ride. 750 km in 10 days. My first substantive sighting of my destination, Albany. It was so close yet so far with 20 km to ride in to the infamous Albany Doctor: a southern ocean headwind.
