Best Rides by State NSW
| Matt Pirani
Oxley Highway, NSW
Not only a best ride in NSW, this is one of the best rides in Australia!!. It’s a 165km stretching from Wauchope near the New South Wales North Coast and climbing over the great Divide to Walcha on the New England plateau. There are over 300 corners from start to finish, 70km of non-stop twisties and a beaut roadhouse half-way along to refuel.
The Putty Road, NSW
Note, expect to see Police patrolling this road, the northern end of the Putty Road which links Windsor to Singleton is a cracker, it's probably still the best fun you’ll have despite being a small ride (16 kilometres) and so close to Sydney. Colloquially referred to as ‘the 10 mile’, it’s the point where the already fun Putty Road tightens up into a well-surfaced piece of motorcycling nirvana. Make sure you are aware of trucks and cars on the road, some tend to sit mid corner.
Bylong Valley Way, NSW
The Bylong Valley Way is a picturesque road which runs between the two small New South Wales towns of Sandy Hollow located on the Golden Highway and Ilford situated on the Castlereigh Highway. The beauty of this 141km stretch is that it has only been sealed in the last decade or so and so still remains relatively quiet. The fact it isn’t a thoroughfare between major towns helps, but keep an eye out for trucks which use it in a bid to avoid the weigh stations. The surface is great, though it’s narrow in parts.
