One you have to do! Good mix of twisties, open flowing sections as well. Fuel available at Scottsdale & St Helens.


99 Bends Tasmania : A10 : Queenstown - Gormanston

Tasmania > Australia > Oceania
May 9, 2018 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

They call it 99 Bends for good reason.
Whether you are on a sports bike, tourer or cruiser, you will love this amazing section of road.
Located on the Lyell Hwy between Queenstown and Gormanston, you will be rewarded with spectacular scenery and a fantastic session of approx 48 kms of curves on a mostly smooth road with a high grip surface.
You can take it slowly and enjoy the scenery or drop your knee onto the tarmac. Whichever you take it be careful of on coming vehicles who can encroach onto the wrong side of the white line on the tighter corners. The good news is most of the time there is little traffic to be seen.
To find the 99 Bends, plot a route between Queenstown and Derwent Bridge and you'll find the 99 Bends not far out from Queenstown.
The ride in/out of Queenstown will take you up and down a very steep rise that will surely challenge you in places with some very tight corners. The Derwent Bridge Hotel is a great start/end point and worth a visit for a refreshing beverage.
Recommendation: If you are riding Tasmania, then this ride has to be on the list.


Western Gippsland Spectacular : Warragul - Korumburra - Wonthaggi - The Gurdies

Victoria > Australia > Oceania
July 18, 2016 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Here is a full day of riding that will reward you but not wear you out. You can create lots of variations, "add ons" and "sidetracks", but here is a good route that's fairly easy to navigate. If you miss a turn or get lost don't worry, you'll still be in some of the best riding areas of Victoria and will be sure to enjoy it regardless.
Starting at The Gurdies you will quickly be heading inland and away from the flat lands of the highway. Plenty of hills and curves to keep you alert as you head to the Kernot Pub. Nice spot for an ale.
Turn left and head up to Loch. For a small township you'll be surprised at the number of eateries and quality food available. There's even a craft brewery to wet your whistle.
Refreshed you can head back south to the tiny town of Archies Creek. Keep an eye out for the spectaular lookout on your right - worth taking in the view. If a pub meal isn't for you then continue through Archies Creek to Wonthaggi for a "big town" rest spot.
The best part of the ride is still ahead as you travel inland to Warragul. The roads are good quality but narrowish and the views get better as you climb into the hills.
Once you go through Korumburra things only get better... the roads soon get windier and narrower with few opportunities to pass slow moving traffic. Watch out for oncoming cars that go wide on corners. The views on either side are spectacular and the roadscape constantly changes.
The only down side will be your return trip as that will most likely be back along open freeway.


Torquay - Lorne - Geelong Via Great Ocean Road & Deans Marsh

Victoria > Australia > Oceania
July 20, 2015 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Here's a great ride for those looking to experience some of the glorious Great Ocean Road but not the full palava.
Accompanied by my ride partner we started off at Torquay and headed to Lorne via the Great Ocean Road. It's not a long ride but you will experience one glorious coastal view after another as you enjoy those twisties.
A quick bevvie and a bite to eat at Lorne and it was time to hit the road again. Instead of returning via the route we came, we headed inland to Deans Marsh & Winchelsea. We were rewarded with all you could ask for; twisties, bush scenery, some open straights and very little traffic.
A short squirt on and we are at Geelong ready to head back to the big smoke.
If you are in the area with an hour or two spare, mount up and enjoy.


Note: Our ride was done on Sunday 12 July 2015 and it was a very cold and very wet day. Despite the conditions we enjoyed every moment of this ride and looking forward to returning on a fine and warm day.


Clematis Cockatoo Warburton

Victoria > Australia > Oceania
October 26, 2014 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Not a challenging ride but an enjoyable one non-the-less.
The route has plenty of open roads, fresh air and scenery to enjoy along the way. Most of the ride is on good quality roads but you may experience a few short rough sections between Cockatoo and Woori Yallock.
The Warburton Bakery offers good food, coffee, easy parking and ample seating; making it a popular stopping point for riders.
If you have a few hours to spare, try wandering the shops or some of the other attractions in and about the township. Hint, don't let your \"Mrs\" roam the shops unattended or it could be an expensive day for you.
Plenty of route options open for your return trip.
All up, nice relaxing ride to blow off the cobwebs on a pleasant Sunday morning / arvo. Beats mowing the lawns!


Moto GP Run Cranbourne to Cowes

Victoria > Australia > Oceania
October 20, 2014 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0

Imagine a ride with 5,000+ motos ranging from big cruisers to nakeds, postie bikes, sports, classics, trikes, choppers, baggers, bobbers and everything in between.
Imagine coming over the crest of hill and for 5+ kms ahead all you can see is motos filling a two lane highway.... not to mention for kms behind you as well.
Imagine arriving at your destination (Cowes, Phillip Island) to a two day party with 10,000 plus moto enthusists capped off with a round of the Moto GP thrown in for good measure.
OK, it's not the most scenic or challenging ride you will ever do but this is one event (and experience) that needs to go on your moto bucket list and get ticked off.... even if you can only do it as pillion.
The event grows bigger each year, so arrive at Cranbourne early if you want a spot in the first 1,000 and a park close to the action at Cowes.
See you there!


Portsea Pub via back road

Victoria > Australia > Oceania
October 10, 2014 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Are you up for a pleasant day trip to stir up the dignified folk of Portsea?
I've started this one at Aspendale Gardens so you can warm things up along the Frankston Freeway.
Coolart Rd section offers some lazy straights to put the legs up on the pegs.
Balnarring to Flinders delivers some glorious scenery and a few sections with nice corners and tight bends.
Your reward is you get to have an ale with the establishment at the Portsea Pub whilst a lovely view of the bay. Just be sure not to make too much noise on arrival or departure.


Yea return

Victoria > Australia > Oceania
September 28, 2014 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Great moderate range day trip.
See notes on other routes to Kinglake - narrow road with many blind corners.
Kinglake to Yea is mostly top quality road surface with plenty of sweeping corners to enjoy.
The same for Yea to Yarra Glen along Melba Highway including a lovely section through Kinglake & Toolangi forests.
Kinglake, Yea and Yarra Glen provide some great cafes and places to take a break.


Greensborough to Kinglake

Victoria > Australia > Oceania
September 14, 2014 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.5

Here's a rewarding short ride that takes you through a range of riding environments from multi-lane major roads to challenging rural sections.
Starting from the end of the Western Road and head outbound along the Greensborough bypass. It doesn't take long before you are passing through some lovely semi-rural townships and enjoying the vistas.
Take extra care on the section from St Andrews to Kinglake; it is narrow, undulating and has numerous very tight blind corners that need to be taken with caution - but this is part of the challenge that makes it so enjoyable.
On weekends you can expect to find a lot of cyclists, often traveling on groups and due to the narrow road passing them can sometimes require a bit of patience due to on coming traffic.
All up, a great short ride.


Frankston to Arthurs Seat return

Victoria > Australia > Oceania
September 17, 2014 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Starting at Franskston makes for an easy RV point.
The ride along Coolart Road takes you through some splendid semi-rural scenery. Roundabouts at most major intersections may reduce the enjoyment of the long easy straights but they have reduced the fatalities that plagued the history of this road.
The ride up the back of Arthurs Seat is not particularly challenging. Be sure to stop at the top and take it all in.
The trip down the front is challenging and requires care; many very tight blind bends and gravel on the road on some corners. Watch out for oncoming traffic crossing over the centre line. Keep an eye on your mirrors for "boy racers" who can appear in a flash - hold your line until safe to pull aside and just let them pass.
From Arthurs Seat take the coastal road back to Frankston and you'll get another great view from Olivers Hill.
Makes for a rewarding afternoon ride.

PS - There's a great cafe / store on corner Marine Parade & Victoria St Safety Beach.

Rowville to Gembrook Return

Victoria > Australia > Oceania
September 14, 2014 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

This is a ride I've done many times when I need a quick escape from the urban areas to some clean air.
This ride provides a range of riding experiences, from 100 kph straights to tight low speed curves and takes you through some picturesque towns and areas.
You could go to Gembrook, have a coffee and then return via the same route, however I suggest you hang a right at Gembrook and take the longer route back to Emerald as it is a lovely ride road and offers some extra challenges with windy roads and plenty of tight corners to lean hard into.
Be aware during winter and wet days many sections of the road in the rural sections may never have day light shine directly onto them due to the tree canopy which has the potential to make them slippery.
