Being based in the Sutherland Shire we are lucky enough to be just minutes from some amazing roads.

Lady Carrington Dr snakes and winds through the 150sq km National Park until it finally opens up at 'Bald Hill', otherwise known as Stanwell Tops.

Stopping at the carpark here is a great opportunity to check out the bikes while you grab something to eat and drink and swap riding stories.
