Quick update while I think of it. Chatting with a friend over coffee this morning who did the same route this weekend that we are doing. BEWARE the 2 wooden bridges between Omeo and Anglers Rest and again at Anglers Rest. Several cyclists down injured after getting their wheels stuck in gaps between the planks. Signs suggest cyclists dismount and walk.
Also while the road to Hotham has loose stones in places due to road work following the road melting in heat earlier in January it is not a problem on the climb or the direction we are heading. If you happen to go for a ride descending Hotham towards Harrietville for any reason slow down.
