We all have our favourite roads that we love to travel – me included – a quick run through the Royal National Park to Bald Hill, up and down Macquarie Pass, Jamberoo Road, Mt Keira and Old Pac & Putty Road. They are all fantastic rides and nothing gives me more pleasure than riding any of them but of late the enjoyment has gone out of them – too many cars, too many police, and at times too many bikes. My solution was to move away from my comfort zone and go out and find some other roads to explore. Today I did a fun but chilly 250 kms. Went dow Bringelly Rd to the Northern Rd & onto Cobbity Rd – from there I headed up Razorback and through Picton, onto Rememberance Drive though Thirlmere, Bargo and then to Yanderra – took the turnoff to Old South Rd (pretty much deserted) and then onto Range Rd – a rough road, a bit wider than single lane but some great riding (though today most of it was in thick fog!!!) Onto Bowral, Mittagong and then I took the freeway for about 15km and then the turn off to Bargo – back up to Thirlmere and went left at the roundabout and headed off to the Oaks – and then eventually to Camden and then Camden Valley Way and home. Old South Road Range Road Montpelier Drive into The Oaks For 95% of my trip there was literally no traffic going my way and very little travelling in the opposite direction. Enough twists to keep me happy and wonderful scenery (when there was no mist) So my recommendation to you all is to find a road that you haven’t been on and explore and little further – you never know what you might find. And to finish a few lines from a poem by Robert Frost (yes it is the English teacher in me coming out) Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.
