The 4th annual BBTA Murwillumbah-Lismore Supported Tour is being held on the weekend of 9/10 March 2019.
After parking in the streets of Murwillumbah, Saturday’s ride begins with the first group leaving at 7am NSW EDST and travels through the town of Uki before a coffee break at Sphinx Rock Cafe, Mt Burrell (30km). Then it is on to morning tea, over the main climb of the weekend, at the little village of Cawongla (53km) before finishing the day relaxing by the pool in Lismore (90km). The ride from Cawongla travels through the valley to Lismore, following Leycester Creek. Sunday’s ride is equally as scenic with a total of 82km back to Murwillumbah via Nimbin (33km) for a coffee break and Uki (65km) for a drink and some food at the Uki pub.
