icon5.gif  Fun Roads - Gathering Ideas for Cruise Fri, 12 November 2004 03:22 Go to next message
Hey guys,

This is cruise related, down the track I'm looking to organise a cruise, but I kind of want to depart from the norm of driving around the normal city roads. It should be a fairly long cruise. It won't happen in the near future, but I'm getting a feeler out for roads that should be included.

Where are the best "driving" roads within striking distance (and I mean close) to Perth?

I've lived here for all my life, and been driving now for 4 years, but never really experienced fun roads except for down south.

Suggestions and descriptions would be most appreciative, and I'll try and formulate something fun.

Thanks,
Nathan

Nathan,
Some of these roads may not be what you consider close to Perth, but they are great for driving all the same.

Chittering and C. Valley Road Bullsbrook
O'Brien Rd Gidgegannup
Mundaring Weir Road Mundaring
Jarrahdale Road - either side of Jarrahdale Townsite (on west the 'hillclimb' then east is the 'twisties')
Kingsbury Drive - south of Jarrahdale.

Cheers,
Mitch.

Well, it'll be a big long day cruise, so they aren't out of the question. Now to find them on a map.

Keep em coming guys.

I've had some fantastic times out past Sawyers Valley along Great Eastern Highway... probably not the best place for a cruise though since it gets boring ASL (at sleed limit Evil or Very Mad)

Another highly recommended late-night detour is up along Toodyay Rd, right onto Stoneville Rd, and then back along Gt. Eastern Hwy.

Otherwise, Mundaring Weir is great. Also I've always wanted to drive down the zig zag but never actually gotten around to it.

I like the sound of this... never been there, I'll look it up Smile

A favorite drive of mine is (starting in Darlington) Leithdale Rd -> Glen Rd -> Victor Rd -> Clayton Rd -> Scott St -> Helena Valley Rd -> turn left after bridge over Roe Hwy and you're on the Gt Eastern Hwy bypass.

sounds like i should put new brake pads on the bike and head out..
the coming back part might be a bit of a problem.. i have a tendency of going overboard..
