Heading to Brindabella Valley yesterday I had the chance to sample some of ACT's finest. And doesn't it just leave Sydney begging. Without a doubt, Brindabella rd shines, constant tight bends and switchbacks with good visibility going on for 20 or so km's until it hits the dirt. If you take a shine to the dirt road business it gets even better heading over the ranges. On the way back, the corners getting progressively tighter heading down the hillside twists its way down into a tight technical nugget of a section finally throwing you out onto the generous sweeps of Cotter road back up the hill, a grand finish to a day. The surface is pretty decent too. Unfortunately I didn't have the opportunity to head south from cotter dam, leaving tales of further gold undiscovered for someone else to tell. Certainly better than anything within easy reach of Sydney.
