The route 🔗
We started in Tweed Heads and it took us 5 days to ride to Woolgoolga, probably averaging about 80 or 90 km per day. For most of the trip we were able to take little-used back roads. If you're thinking of doing this ride, avoid the highway, especially the single-carriageway parts.
Trevor and Bob 🔗
... Bob the trailer, that is. This is the kitchen area at the slightly feral macadamia plantation near Murwillumbah where we camped on the first night.
Lookout near Murwillumbah 🔗
Late morning on day two. From left to right we see Sue (chief ride planner), Bob (the other Bob - not the trailer), and Trevor (just the one). It's really hilly around here, so be prepared to travel a fair bit slower than average. It's very picturesque though.
Leaving the lookout 🔗
Trevor, Moulton and Bob-trailer in action.
Day three 🔗
Somewhere south of Alstonville. Still very pretty, but getting less hilly.
Field of beans 🔗
Not far from Coraki. Looks like they grow 3 things around here - sugarcane, soy beans (pictured) and tea tree (for oil, just up the road).
Forest Glen Organic Farm 🔗
Sort of in the middle of nowhere (between Coraki and Whiporie), but a great spot to camp. Contact Forest Glen Organic Farm for details.
To Woolgoolga 🔗
The final stretch - across the range between Glenreagh and Woolgoolga.
