Why do bikers so often go for their ride on a Sunday. Is it just habit of do the chores and shopping Saturday then go for ride on Sunday.
I went for a ride on Saturday, not the first time and may not be the last. Less cars in the mountains day tripping, less people in cafes so no problem to get a good table, no crowd at the pub for lunch. Not always going to work as you can go grocery shopping on a Sunday but wont find a specialist store such as a bike shop open then.
Top of Trees road Tallebudgera - yep, worth a visit.
There were bush fires on Mt Tamborine and another started during the day near Tyalgum so alot of smoke about at times. I rode down over my recent find of Tullebudgera valley and over to Currumbin Valley then around to Tumbulgum and Terranora. Then back down to Murwillumbah pub for lunch, then to Uki via Chillingham and Tyalgum then south before mates bike sprung a fuel leak. Fortunately a car pulled up and was a Buell rider from Perth on holiday offered us a hand and helped re-seat a compression fitting from under tank in no time. I didn't even get his name but a big thank you, your gesture reassured my faith in mankind after a week of work ended with myself convinced a couple of my coworkers are less than human.
Returned to place that is a real find - the cafe at the new Tweed Valley Gallery. Great coffee and light food on the deck of this stylish building overlooking the entire valley - what a spot. Just take the road to Stokers Siding on the old highway heading south then the gallery is on your left 100 metres.
Road to Stokers siding, south from the gallery cafe, which has 270 degree outlook.
Chewed the fat a bit then did the long ride home. By this time it was already 4pm so was bit later than normal back to Brisbane and mental note to trim the distance a bit next time.
