Do your licence a favour, and ride this ribbon of delight mid-week. Youll see how popular it is (on weekends) by the amount of rubber on the road, deposited by bikes and tin-tops, and Im not talking burn-outs.
This is up there with the Oxley Hwy, although shorter and busier, the western side of Mt Hotham, and dare I say it, The Tail of The Dragon.
The scenery is spectacular, if you have time to look. Probably a bad idea ;)

This route was shown to me by my father in-law as it is one of his favorites. I have to say I can see why he likes it. The start at the village petrol station helps to check tyres and fuel but be careful on the changing speed limits until pasr Highvale. The police are around most weeknds and like jumping out on riders. Once you start the Mt Glorious climb you are in for a mix of tight corners followed by some more relaxed ones which allow some opening up on the way up the hill. At the top there are a few cafe's for a coffee and breakfast and speed limit past all of them so watch out. The other side has that UK country lane feel and does have leaves on the edges of roads so the middle is a safe place to be. Also there might be a little bit of gravel on a couple of the corners. But in the general the downward side has some great tight sections to challenge you then it opens out to some sweeping corners and some straights for the final push to the end at the T junction for a stop and a chat before tackling it the other way which is as fun (and my favorite bit). you could also carry on to either Wivenhoe or Somerset dams for straights, bends and beautiful views just choose left or right.

Also be aware there are some really good fast guys on this route too so be aware of them too but they do have great advice to give if you ask them for it over a coffee. Also there is sometimes the odd cow on the road on the way down the Mt towards Wivenhoe Road T junction
