A hot Labor Day was characteristic of the general weather conditions presented during the long weekend period, with temperatures exceeding 30°C on all three days. A crowded urban environment, coupled with the hot weather, is a combination that I tend to prefer to avoid, and this means staying away from the popular holiday destinations and tourist traps. For a good quality, local getaway, there was just one option: Wisemans Ferry.
Wisemans Ferry is what I like to refer to as Sydney’s lesser-known backyard. Geographically, it’s almost the same distance away as the Calga section of the Old Road is from metropolitan Sydney, yet it is not as popular with sport bike riders despite the abundance of top riding roads surrounding the location. For this fact, I quite like it. As the saying goes, less is more.
This day marked the first ride together with my mate Mio, who’s just finished serving his 6 month licence suspension period. Symbolising a new start, hope and a sense of regained freedom, it was a good day of riding enjoyment and a time of reflection. Mio is a highly proficient photographer, and I invite you to check out his content on his website, and feel free to interact with him on his Facebook page.
