080423 Day 3 Lauder - Wedderburn

We biked from Lauder to Wedderburn (34km). Highlights of today’s ride on the rail trail include the engineering marvel that is the Poolburn Gorge Viaduct and tunnels, and the vast wide open Ida Valley (made famous by the painter Grahame Sydney), the Idaburn dam (famous for its winter curling), a visit to Hayes Engineering Works, and the wee town of Wedderburn at the top of the rail trail. In the afternoon we made a side trip in our bus to the town of Naseby where
we had a ball of a time trying the ancient sport of curling on the new indoor purpose built ice facility. We ended the day with a great meal at the local pub.
