Description


Ride Details
Commence at Noreuil Park (8:00am) and ride out along the Wonga Wetlands path to Kremer St. Head north on Kremer St. and then take the gravel path through the Patricia Gould Reserve to Pemberton St. The road bike alternative is to take Padman Drive and left onto Mott St.to Pemberton St.).
Once we regroup, we will go east and climb to the top of Pemberton St, have a short breather and then take a sharp left onto Yambla Ave. and Stedman Cres. to take in the views over Albury City. The route will then go along Elm St., Holmwood Cross, Poole St., and Gap Road for another climb and a breather at the top.
Down the northern side of the gap and straight on to Tenbrink St., right onto Daniel St. and left onto Chenery St. which is slightly different from our normal route through this part of town. Turn right onto Logan Rd, left on Burrows Rd and left again onto Union Rd. which we will follow to its very western end. 

  • If you want enjoy the views over North Albury and Lavington we will follow the fire trail that runs along the northern side of Norris Park.  The fire trail roughly follows the  contour, but there are few small ups and downs. At the only steep point, we will all dismount and negotiate the short (20m) descent and ascent. The surface of the trail has a few small stones, but there are no potholes, corrugations or wash aways. However, it is not suitable for bikes with skinny tyres. The trail emerges from the bush at the top of Burrow's Rd.
  • If you want to stick to the bitumen, you'll need to do a U-turn back along Union Rd.  and then take a left into Norris park at Hartwig Ave. followed by a right onto Emma Way, left at Wright St., left at Crawshaw Cres and left on Burrows Rd. where there is another hill to climb. 

Our rendezvous point will be at the top of hill on Burrows Rd. and from here we will descend Michelle Ave. and join the Bungambawatha path to head back into Albury.

This ride has many similarities to the Wondonga Views ride, but the hills are not as steep, no long and fast descents on loose gravel surfaces and no pedestrian gates to negotiate!
