Teven Valley Romp, Ballina

A lovely romp up the picturesque Teven Valley. Total distance around 25km. Starting from The Bicycle Emporium, head west out of town along River St. Cross the North Creek bridge and slip into Johnson Dr and then Kalinga St to avoid the worst of the traffic along River St. At the end of Kalinga turn right onto the Burns Point Ferry Rd then left onto River St again and follow this out to the interchange with the Pacific Highway. Pass under the Pacific Highway and join the Bruxner Highway for 500m taking the first turn on the right, Teven Rd. Follow Teven Rd for around 2km, cross the Emigrant Creek Bridge and take the first right onto North Teven Rd. Follow this beautiful little climb over the hill then drop down past the quarry (watch for trucks) then out to meet Tintenbar Rd, turn left, cross two small creeks then turn left onto Teven Rd and head back to town.
