Off I went, then, towards Bellingen, headed on down Waterfall Way.
DOWN WATERFALL WAY.
Now, when I was taking to my partner about my plans south, he mentioned that I'd like doing Waterfall Way from the north, as it goes down the hills.
What he did not say was: it is a mad trip going from 760km to sea level in 10km, taking you all of about five minutes ON A BICYCLE, and a twisting, turning, snake road of pure evil MAD FUN. I squeed all the way down, happily twisting my way, hogging the middle of the road because my life was more important than keeping some car behind me from going their full speed.
IT WAS AWESOME, EASILY THE BEST RIDE OF MY LIFE.
At the bottom was Thora, and from there to Belligen is something of up and down, but along the river. Beautiful scenery, lovely to look at as I couldn't look while navigating the madness of Waterfall Way. While doing this section I noticed all the cars going the opposite way with bicycles strapped to the top of them: they have the right of it, take the bikes to the top and come down. Very probably there is some sort of organised ride every so often for bicycles, closing the road to others for the few minutes it would take on a road bike.
