What a feast ..
After breakfast at Wisemans, we enjoy a very scenic twisty run along the river to our first taste of dirt through surrounding forests. After the easy run up, it pays to be on your toes for the first dirt section, it usually takes a few riders by surprise with an early start to rough and washed out trails.

Wisemans Ferry Road
Passing through Spencer
The short breakouts are a little off the general route and provide a bit more technical riding without being over the top.
After the forest trails and a very scenic run along Watagan Creek Road, it's time for the halfway checkpoint and lunch at the Laguna Trading Post.
As if the morning isn't spectacular enough, it's time to switch the GPS to Stage 2 for the run back to Wisemans, via Wollombi, Yango and St Albans. It's a stunning place to ride, and has the best of the best adventure roads and trails.
Today is a real mixed bag, dirt roads, sandy whooped out tracks, gates, a stretch along the Putty Rd and a scenic run along the ridges.
Happy to cruise and take in the sights, play in the sand or go for a good blast, which ever way you take Day 2, you'll be smiling and probably laughing inside your helmet all the way back.
See you out there!
