Tim, such long distances. :shock: :D You must be a very disciplined man. The most I can do in Port Stephens would be 60km because it is soooooooooooo boring.
Hats off to you
:P
Great work

Thanks Apple, knocked out 600 for the 9 days we were up there, pretty happy with that, had to overlap the routes a bit as well, but enjoyed it, Tim

Looks like you picked every possible safe route in the area. Same as you, I did not dare to venture further west on Nelson Bay Rd due to its lack of shoulder and speeding vehicles. It was a very nice area to ride with an interesting variety of terrain. Good enough for holiday riding but the restriction to the west will soon get boring.

If one has a MTB, there's the possibility of riding the coastal sand dunes to safely go west of the peninsula. It'd be a long detour.
