Kempsey Rd

  1. Hiyah,

    Just wondering... where's the Kempsey Rd on the scale of "tame" to "are you psycho, you're about to cross the river Styx?!" ?



    (btw... it crosses the river Styx :) )

  3. I think it's this one running between East Kempsey and Wollomombi on the NSW mid-north coast:

    wollomombi-east kempsey.

    West-to-east it is Kempsey Road which becomes Armidale Road at Blackbird Flat.

  5. It does, and suitably bendy too; nice spotting of yours. The NSW mid-north coast is seemingly full of these sorts of roads. I have a 5-6-hour transit to get to any of them so they will be extra-special to ride one day.

  6. Street view from 2010 has it as unsealed. Given the location, I wouldn't get your hopes up that its any different now... if that's important to you, of course. ;)

  7. It's a dirt road though.

  9. Dirt isn't too big a problem - though I'd probably change my tires before I rode something like that

  10. Yes, same for me. Guess that I'm just going to have to have a long weekend sometime soon :) The Oxley looks nice too...
