69 / Putty Road : Windsor - Broke

New South Wales > Australia > Oceania
February 7, 2008 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

After leaving Windsor on the Sydney outskirts, the road winds through a twisty section as it climbs and descends into the countryside. Whilst the corners are good, the surface is not, so bide your time, till you reach the Colo Heights area (Petrol available), whereupon the road begins to open up.

The next section is fairly fast with very few hazards except for random wildlife from the National Parkland. There are no real side junctions. It carries on for a fair while and may be considered a little dull by some, but again, there is a reason why this is such a great road...

In the northern section, the Putty road approaches a line of hills which stand between the National Parkland and the famous vineyards of the Hunter valley. As these hills get closer, the surface changes from average to very good and the road starts to twist and turn in all directions as it navigates a pass through the hills. This is the known as the 15k bends. They start to come thick and fast, almost all are well signposted and the surface remains consistently good. Whilst, this is an extremely twisty and challenging section, there are a couple of points where a decent road bike will be able to overtake, so dont despair if you find yourself stuck behind a slow moving car.
The 15k bends make the entire journey worthwhile, and will be enjoyable on any size of bike. While they are certainly twisty, there are no real frighteners that come from nowhere, so with a little caution mixed with a little confidence, you can have use your tyres as God intended.

44 / Bruxner Hwy : Casino - Tenterfield

New South Wales > Australia > Oceania
March 28, 2007 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

This 126 km ride along some great twisties and lovely sweepers travels from the Richmond River valley up the Great Dividing Range onto the New England Tableland. Fully sealed, it includes some blind corners and good surface most of the way, as well as a couple of really bumpy corners too. Care is required on parts of the twisty sections with some off-camber corners. Experienced riders will really enjoy a fang, whilst less experienced and average riders should take some sections easily. For a longer ride, start another 64 km to the East in the beautiful small town of Bangalow. Start with a full tank as there is no (or little) fuel between Casino and Tenterfield. A good half-way rest stop, just before the route rises up through the twistier sections is at Drake - with public toilets, park and a pub. Tenterfield has some attractions too.
