On December 7th, we took part in the first annual Throttle Doll ride. (Yes, this post is well overdue.)
For those who don’t know of The Throttle Dolls, in their own words they describe themselves “three red-lipped Dolls who aren’t afraid of scraping the pegs”.
“We represent the lady riders who have the guts to rule the roads on two wheels but not at the expense of style and sass. We have a particular passion for the retro, unique and vintage versions of everything bike related.
Based in Sydney, Australia, we commute, cruise, meet for croissants and coffee and tour the coastlines of our country with one aim… to relish in the thrilling symphony of engines and sisterhood. ”
The Throttle Dolls Ride
Meeting up at Harry’s Café De Wheels, the weather was perfect and the local scene was out in force with over 70 riders showing up for a fun filled day in the twisties of the Royal National Park. Kicking the morning off with a little chit-chat, the usual drooling over each others motorcycles ensued before the Dolls gave out directions, fuel & meeting spots.
As with all local Sydney rides, the motorcycles on show were outstanding and the mix definitely had a ‘something for everyone’ attitude. With everything from Sportsers to Monsters, Trackers to Triumphs, any onlooker watching us ride past was in for a treat.
Here is the map of the route:
At the half way point, we stopped off at the always beautiful Bald Hill lookout at Stanwell Tops. The views here are epic and for those that haven’t ridden the National Park, it’s worth it just to stop here and watch the paragliders jumping off the cliff and sawing down to the beaches below.
After stretching our legs and grabbing a coffee, we headed back through the National Park where some riders peeled off and some headed to The Vic, Enmore for lunch.
