After the fun of our ride last Sunday, we decided to go out again on the same route last wednesday afternoon….but this time in the opposite direction.
First up we headed out onto the highway and headed north, then off sextons hill onto Terranora Road…..its a great road with some great corners. Then after arriving on the other side at Tumbulgum, we rode the back way, through North Tumbulgum, Dulguigan, a small part of Tomewin Road and then headed along Cane Road to Condong, then onto the highway…..
But instead of riding back to Kingscliff via the Tweed Valley Way as we did last time…..we took the turnoff at Clothiers Creek Road and decided to head over to Cabarita Beach and or Bogangar, and that road looks something like this……
And here’s the second part of it….
For anyone who’s ridden over that hill, you’ll realise there are some very low speed tight corners, some blind apex corners (complete with those convex mirrors that show you if anyone is coming around the corner) and some cool straights too.
Here are some shots of some parts of the road……
Here’s the approach to the first good corner.
And when you get to the end of this straight you are confronted with this…
And here’s some nice right-handers….
And here’s one that disappears off into the trees….
If you ever get a chance to head up to this part of the country, make sure you are on two-wheels, and make sure you give this road a go…..and if you have time, turn around at the other end and then go back and do it all over again.
We also had an awesome early morning ride today…..left before sunrise and headed down the highway, (it was a bit cool until the sun came up) but we had a great time. Looking forward to being out on the road with SB & SG over the weekend.
Have a great week, bye for now, Derbi.
To finish off this week we once again have Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of the week. This week she is an actress, and a brunette…..(again!) She made her film debut in “House of the Damned” in 1996, and also starred in the video for Linkin Park’s song “Numb”. She was the main character in 2008′s “Step Up 2: The Streets”, she is the co-founder, vocalist and keyboard player for the band “Moorish Idol”…..She is Briana Evigan.
