  The road from Wisemans Ferry to St Albans is the best kept secret in cycling. Very little motor traffic and just out of St Albans is this delightful panorama (picture taken on 10 Sept). This road will feature in a new event on the NSW road racing calendar in mid May 2019 that includes the St Albans “ Hell of the North ” dirt section very much in the classic Paris Roubaix tradition. Planning for this new event is now well underway.
