Another ‘old road’ as in former part of the Pacific highway exists south of Murwillumbah and is now called the Tweed valley way. But to bikers this is the Burringbah range. Not overly long but beautifully surveyed sweepers with passing lane and great surface. I often would detour to ride this to Mooball the town with the black and white spotted cow theme.
There is one fix mounted speed camera that you need to be aware of travelling south – don’t worry it does not ruin the ride.
You can locate this road on the map, expand to see the list.
These ‘good road’ posts were published 2006-2008. At some point the original images and descriptions became out of date and I moved overseas. I archived them here to update when I ride Australia again. This collection is just my own personal riding records, not a definitive list.
This is an awesome fun bit of road, go there very regularly, but there is only the one fixed speed camera on this road now, it is at the Northern end of the run
the cameras were actually installed around 2000, back when it was the highway, and they havent been removed
Yep just the one camera now which does not spoil the road by any means.
Watch for the Tweed/Byron L.A.C cops hiding on the western side of the road about a kilo south of the camera.
There is a dirt driveway and they lurk there waiting for bikes.
They will then try and claim that they "Have You" on radar at a very convenient 99kmh.
The Murwillumbah Magistrate is sick of these antics and will throw the ticket out if you take it to court.
