Today’s ride was a long one, the weather had been very ordinary for most of last week and so it had been 7 days since our last ride, but just like yesterday, today’s weather was stunning…..so after work we headed out.
First we headed down Marine Parade, out over the creek to Salt & Casuarina, then out to the coast road for the run back to Cudgen, headed left at the lights onto Cudgen Road and followed that along one of our favourite bits of road to the highway, via the 1.5 km twisty road that we love so much, then headed south to Tumbulgum, turned right and over the river, up the hill to Terranora, then down Fraser Drive and Dry Dock road to South Tweed Heads…..then it was follow Minjungbal Drive to Tweed Heads, cross the border and head through Coolangatta, Kirra and then up the Gold Coast highway to Currumbin, then we headed out to the Currumbin Valley, before heading back to Stewart Road, then onto the M1 for the trip home…..all up it was about 105 km, and great fun. Here’s what it looks like from space….
It was a great ride and we got to see lots of other bikes, (Chopper, R1, GSX-R 750, Zip 50 etc…) Anthony also got to see a few other riders with the same helmet as he has – the Shoei XR-1000 Rogue…but the best part was seeing a big smiles on the faces of all the riders out enjoying an afternoon ride, whether they were commuting, or just enjoying the sun….days like this are made for riding.
Today’s winner of Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger is another Brazilian Model, (noooo…she comes from Brazil!!…….) anyway she was born in Salvador in 1981, best known for her work with Victoria’s Secret, as a spokesperson for Maybelline and works for the Elite Model agency in New York.
