Damn. How far up Gorge? A large amount of the guard railing (all of it now?) has the 'bike friendly' padding which is good to see. Of course there's still a lot of exposed rock in sections.

You know I have trouble fathoming the speeds one would have to travel at along Gorge Rd to actually come off. It's such a smooth and easy road. Not to mention the fact it's heavily policed. Leave the speeding for the track - it's more fun.

I'm not impressed by road speed - anyone pushing on roads like these needs their head checked.

RIP.
