Sweeping country roads, reasonable surface, undulating ride down off the Dividing Range. Enjoyable ride. Some poorly patched potholes with loose surface debris.
Mixed riding backroads with some really potholed sections. Suit adventure riding or upright naked bikes were your not weighted on wrists. Some nice towns to stop by.
Suits adventure riders - great views and some fantastic photo opportunities
Nice ride in either direction with reasonable road surface, tight cornering sections and sweeping bends with views. Great to tack onto Beechmont run.

2 day trip west of brisbane with overnight stay in Kenilwort. Plenty of time to make stops and enjoy local towns, or reride some of the shorter technically challenging bends.
This is one set of twisties you wont forget
2 day loop
This is a sealed 45 km shortcut across the border ranges that is substantially maintained by funds generated by the local Kyogle and Beaudesert Lions Clubs. As such, it has some very bumpy sections and potholes may remain unfilled for some time. This road is thin with quite a few unsurveyed corners, dips, rises, wooden bridges, cattle wandering between the cattle grids (leaving their deposits on the road) and creek crossings. Regardless of all this, the Lions Road is popular for its tight endless corners and as an interesting and scenic shortcut between Rathdowney and Kyogle. To start at the northern end, either turn left off the Mount Lindsay Hwy about 6.5 km before Rathdowney onto Innisplain Road (and travel south for 6.1 km); or head east out of Rathdowney on Running Creek Road for 3.0 km then turn right at 'T' to head south. It is then about 20.7 km to the state border crossing where there are donation tins located to each side of the road (to help with maintenance costs). The road travels through the rain forest, over the hills, along various creeks, and also is aligned closely to the interstate railway. A turnoff 2.2 km south of the border crossing takes you a hundred metres or so to a lookout that makes a good rest stop with a view of the border railway loop below. The marked end of this route is 18 km north of Kyogle (3.7 km north of Wiangaree) along the Summerland Way.
The Lions Road then loop back around to Rathdowney
Great ride with mix of mountain bends, technically challenging steep gradients, rainforest, rural straights, water views. Some great cafés to eat or pack a picnic.
A full days ride at moderate speed, mixed riding, with twisties, forest sections, mountain crossings, river flats. Couple of good food stops - Tumbulgum hotel being one of them right on the Tweed river.
