Road Riding in the Snowies is epitomised by rolling hills and endless quiet country roads.

 

general hints

The Road riding in the Snowies area is generally of an adventurous nature, the lack of vehicles is appealing to the cyclist used to city roads.  With this in mind please be considerate of other road users when out riding (not just in the Snowies by the way) the narrowness of local roads can make it difficult for vehicles to pass you.  

In the interests of community harmony please be aware of drivers (especially in heavy vehicles or towing trailers).  You are within your legal right (and may feel safer) to ride 2 abreast, when there is no unbroken middle line, but this can make it nearly impossible for vehicles to overtake you. Likewise a large group riding single file can create a train of a couple of hundred metres for a vehicle to try and overtake. There is no answer to this issue but awareness and consideration by all road users can make it a great place to ride.

Even “local rides” in the region are more remote than most visiting cyclists are used to, there are many areas you will ride through which DO NOT HAVE MOBILE PHONE coverage, this is especially true if you use a carrier other than Tesltra.  Be prepared - see the Being Prepared section for more information
