I think I have OBCD….

Yep, Obsessive Blogging Compulsive Disorder……..just thought I’d share today’s ride with you all.

It had been a long day and so we started off with a trip down the highway from Kingscliff, heading south till we got to the Tropical Fruit World turnoff, then headed up the hill (1.5 km of twisties….)

When we reached the top, we took the turn to the right, heading out along Duranbah Road and anyone who’s been that way will remember the section where the road is enclosed in a tunnel of trees and looks something like this……(thanks Google Maps)

And then after a while the road keeps going across the top of the ridge until you get to a junction where we took the Murwillumbah exit along Eviron Road….which begins with this sign….

Twistie bits for 4km!!!  Ooooh Baby….. And it was a road that I’ve never ridden on before, and it was so much fun!

This down-hill right hander was great fun….

Here i am hanging out on the side of the road once we got down off the hill

After turning off Eviron Road we went down the highway to Murwillumbah, then headed back through Tumbulgum and Terranora.

Here I am hanging out at Sunnycrest Drive.

And finally, here’s a shot looking across the River when we were back in Kingscliff…..
