I have July off and will be riding to visit the folks on Russell Is in QLD, I have family in Cowra and plan to break the trip and stay there a night. Then to Forbes and onwards. Rather than just riding up the very boring and speed camera choked Hume hwy, I'm thinking maybe to cross the Snowy Mtns Bombala-Jindabyne-Tumut. Are these roads going to be bike friendly in July ? Never been thru that way and have a mental picture of Snow, ice and snowchains. Any advice for the ride ?
