Clyde Mountain - Kings Highway.
Batemans Bay to Braidwood. NSW.
What a fantastic land we live in for riding motorcycles. Warm most of the time with a series of mountains from Nambour to Melbourne near to the coast that we have build roads up and over.
This road is a real gem, very smooth and easy to ride. Superb surveying with lots of flowing corners, the ride to the base of the mountain is every bit as good as the climb if you don't get caught behind traffic. I was there week day so did not encounter the highway patrols that are said to love this road however I did strike heaps of cars and trucks which made my license safe anyway. I presume weekends would see it quite busy with people heading to or from the coast and Canberra.
Keep going on the Kings Highway and you end up in the nations capital, which is an interesting and beautiful city but slightly confusing to ride/drive in.
