Our second ride amidst the Tablelands region took us to the gorgeous little town of Jugiong, just off the Hume Highway. This 85km route has a serious amount of kick for a ride that reaches its high point at 500m above sea level.
With more than 1,500m of climbing to be tackled across the loop, you'll do well to stop in Harden (we chose the Barnes Store Emporium and Cafe) for a mid-ride refuel before taking on the back half. The bike of choice is anything that can take tyres of at least 30mm in width but you don't need the full adventure specification for these gravel roads. Most of the time they are fast rolling but expect the odd bit of rough along the way.
Full feature to come and link to route below (elevation is actually 1,500m).
