It was Friday before the weekend and just had to make it through work. The trip was to start by all meeting on the old road just outside of Sydney late Friday afternoon. After riding along the old road till Mt White we headed along the F3 and continued onto the Pacific Hwy. The plan was to ride to Bulahdelah and spend the night.
The next morning after a restless night, the Hotel and the room was right next to the Pacific Hwy. Every time that a truck went by every thing in the room shook. One thing I would suggest is you make sure you book a Hotel that is not right on the main Highway. Once we were back on the road we continued up the Pacific Hwy until the turn off for the Oxley just outside of Port Macquarie.
The Oxley Highway climbs up the Great Dividing Range and the road has it all, from the long open corners to the quite twisty ones. Thankfully the road is also in good condition and not too rough but remember to read the sign as your entering the corners. A good place to stop along the Oxley is the Gingers Creek roadhouse for all your needs. After a break we continued across the New England tablelands to the New England Hwy and on to Tamworth for the night.
On Sunday morning after a much better night sleep in a good Hotel we push on to Singleton to tackle the Putty Rd. This is a good ride but be careful of some of the tight blind corners that tighten up and in some parts if you get it wrong it's going to hurt, so take care till you get to know it. The Putty ends you up in Windsor so this was about the end of a great ride and weekend. If your looking for something to do for a weekend get some mate's together and give it a try, you'll love it!!
