I'd ride Beach Road more if my cycling wasn't mainly commuting, in peak hour though it's a royal PITA which is why I normally ride Nepean.
One of my favourite rides was the 2005 ATB when I did the Sorrento direction. Riding along there at dawn with residents sitting at the front of their driveways to watch us was a great experience.
Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority. . . .
