A full days ride at moderate speed, mixed riding, with twisties, forest sections, mountain crossings, river flats. Couple of good food stops - Tumbulgum hotel being one of them right on the Tweed river.
The most anticipated road to open for bikers. Newly paved through to Grand Marias. Glimpses of Lake Superior, side jaunts to waterfalls and Devil's Log Slide plus a ride along towering sand dunes makes this a spectacular ride.
Starts off as a smooth road with open views up onto the Border Ranges. As you approach the hilly country the road detoriates dramatically. Sections of the road are extensively potholes patched with more patched potholes. Road edges are also collapsed...
This route is out in the middle of nowhere, but beautiful scenery and a great example of CA backroads. For anyone traveling through the central coast, this route would take longer but is much more scenic than the 5 or 101 freeways.
