the weather is getting cooler….

Hi all.   Has anyone else noticed that it’s getting a bit cooler lately?  It was particularly evident on Monday afternoon when we left Grafton to head back to Yamba.  The sun was lower, the shadows were longer and the temperature was definitely moving further south.  But the biggest problem with riding home on Monday and Tuesday was the bugs…lots and lots of bugs!  Anthony’s visor, jacket, and backpack were pelted with hundreds of the little buggers, and they were also splattered all across the front of me.  I was covered in a sea of green and yellow muck!

But despite that, this weeks riding has been great fun, the morning rides to work have been sunny and have given us a chance to get out and enjoy the road……something that we also did last  Saturday afternoon.

We headed out of town and took the long stretch down Middle Road, out to North Bank Road at Palmers Island, then back out onto the main road, before heading onto the highway towards Grafton, and took the Maclean exit at Ferry Park…..which looks something like this.

And then after getting to Maclean, we headed out to Brooms Head……which looks something like this…

The road out to Broom includes some awesome long flowing corners which are connected by long straight bits (which gave us a chance to open up the throttle and go for it)

It was a great ride, and as the sun started going down, we headed back to Yamba, (in the reverse direction) and had a great time.  It was approximately 100 km and a great way to spend a saturday afternoon.

I hope that you are all enjoying your trips up and down the blacktop this week….cheers, Derbi.
