Many NR folk have burned their chicken strips and their souls on the Oxley. This road can be heaven and hell personified. Not only do the weather gods mock you with sunshine on one lot of corners but a few km ahead, you will be pulling over and chucking more layers on or even pulling your winter gauntlets back on in a hurry. The view is ever changing from picturesque vistas of prime grazing pastures and clumps of forest, to slate outcrops that occasionally disgorge soccer-ball sized boulders down in your direction, to those wonderful s corners that lead you up to remnant rainforest canopies with cooling moist air, then up across an almost tundra-like area, heavily wooded stands of eucalypts and finally you are spat out onto the long wind-swept undulating plains down to Walcha. Magical. Post up some of your Oxley favs here to share and entice others to try the Oxley. So to get the ball rolling here are some happy snaps from some of the many rides I have done up the Oxley on Wasabi. My next ride will likely be on the new steed. How lucky am I to break in some new fatty tyres AND an engine on this road. Some nice twistys up to Long Flat to whet your appetite for what's ahead. I love clunking over this bridge just before Long Flat. Then onto Long Flat proper Then a few good flats for blatting a bit then a few twistys onto Ellenborough Then it is just too much fun riding to be arsed to stop and take photos- you just have to believe me when I say it is truly beautiful and a well worth the travel. Then a funny little place at Ginger's Creek- good for a wee and I have had a noice cuppa tea and scones with jam and cream here ( I confess more than once ) Then onwards and upwards, ever spiralling through the cooling rain forest type area. Then an almost Braidwood type plateau or tundra that must cop some serious snow and is cold even in summer. Then a lovely ride back down then...whammo...land speed record time on the flats into Walcha (Wasabi must have a speed limiter called my arse methinks, as I just cannot get beyond $1.60- won't I need the sards on the new bike that I am told will crack $2.00 easily sheeeet!) So post your Oxley bragging shots guys and gals.
