Ride Description
A ride that takes in a major part of the ride that the pros do to Comboyne (including the big hill!). We are starting the ride at the /Comboyne Rd intersection to avoid riding along the tight and winding section of the Oxley Hwy from Wauchope. Ride along Comboyne Rd through Byabarra to the base of the Comboyne Hill. Have a crack at it. Pick the small chain ring and Granny gear and chug up the hill – the sense of accomplishment will be worth the effort as will the run back down it. We’ll turn around at the top of the hill after getting our breath back. Retrace your route back to the Oxley Hwy. There are 4 timber bridges on Comboyne Rd where caution is advised and you can turn around at any stage to shorten the ride. When back at the start point, we’ll then load the bikes onto the cars (or ride if you didn’t drive) and head back to Curly’s Café (243 High St (Oxley Hwy) opposite Timbertown, Wauchope) for a feed, cuppa and a yarn about how good it was to conquer “the hill”. {Ride out to the start to add more k’s if you want to}.
