Tee also supplies this tip for those who don’t want to venture too far from the city.
“Go where the wealthy folks live. Their roads are brilliant. From Dayboro you can spend an hour going down two roads that end in dirt and return for coffee. How convenient is that? Do it before 10am because the sunshine through the trees is just; well it’s all part of the experience.”
I have another nearby favourite that I use to test the suspension on bikes I have for review: Upper Brookfield Rd.
It’s only 10 minutes from home and it winds through some very wealthy areas.
The road is tight and twisty, it has concrete dips that cross creeks, there are on-and-off-camber corners, the greenery is stunning and there is hardly any traffic.
At the 60km/h posted speed limit it’s still great fun.
As Tee says, “dead-end roads are excellent, less traffic, terrific scenery and all so close to town”.
