Hi Guys n Gals, This has prob been done to death but i thought id do a quick write up for the learners out there comparing these two roads. I did putty rd two weeks ago and it was the first longer ride ive been on and i have to say im addicted after riding it. Smooth freshly paved roads, about 15km of tight corners (35km to 65 km posted), we saw one police car do a lap while we were up there. There wasnt many cars and even if there was there was plenty of opportunity to overtake. Highly recommended for any rider. I didn't like the old road as much as there were more cars and bikes, lots of bicycles in big groups taking over the road, bumpy road in sections. I didn't see a police car all day which was good. Old road is alot faster with corners averaging probably 65km and only one or two 35km corners. I have only ridden these roads once and enjoyed them both, however i will definitely be going to putty more often than the old road. Thanks for reading!
