Rode the Spurs today.

  1. Hi all,
    Myself and another six mates on bikes did the Spurs today riding from Warburton up the Reefton then on to Marysville for a bite and a cuppa and from there along the Black Spur. :)
    In contrast to a couple of months ago (worst ride due to road conditions :mad: ) to today where the Reefton was great and back to 100kph :applause: , there was a small section that had a few loose stones but still good riding all the way to the T at the top, from there to Marysville there was a bit of bark litter but other than that it was a pretty good ride.:woot:
    From Marysville along the Black Spur there was very little traffic which we overtook easily :-w and had a great time through the twisties to home. If you were thinking of going for a cruise through the Spurs but uncertain about road conditions just jump on the bike and go. Kev. :biker:

  2. Good to hear mate, thanks for that.

    I'll have to get out there at least once more while I still live so close.
  3. for someone who lives in geelong, can someone google map me the spur? cheers.

    A to B is The Black Spur
    B to C to D is the Reefton Spur

    If you're going to make the effort to come up from Geelong then maybe try this.

    Get a few more twisties in and make it worth that horrible stretch of hell they call the freeway. ;)

    I went down the Reefton a few weeks ago and the top section was shite. Bark and rubbish everywhere, but the lower twisty section was awesome.

    But if Kevo says it's clear... let's roll! :biker:
