A great backroad alternative to the boring highway between Lithgow and Bathurst. The road does a bit of everything: corners, straights, humpback bridges, level crossings, timber bridges, sudden 90 degree switchbacks and beautiful NSW countryside.
A nice nd generally fast short ride. Heading to Bathurst from Maccas in Orange , making your way to the Icely road off the Northern Distributor and following it to White Rocks rd. From there you follow Ophir Rd all the way into Bathurst and finish at Maccas. Refresh and perhaps have a blat around Mt Panorama before hesding back home to Orange either by the way you came in or via the Mitchell Highway. Cop presence on the highway is moderate.
