Noreuil Park 8:00am. A short but scenic ride. We start at Noreuil Park and head toward Hovell Tree Park... Roadworks mean we go around the Albury swimming pool and across a narrow bridge onto a short dirt track before reaching the trail to Wonga wetlands.. a short sharp hill ( remember to change gears in advance and keep left) brings us parallel to the Riverina Highway. We follow the trail along the Murray river to the Kremur st boat ramp  and start of the Yindymarra sculpture trail. Following the sculptures, we also pass the Horseshoe lagoon and the dozens of basking turtles, pelicans, geese, coots, ducks, cormorants, ibis and other water loving birds(not the turtles). The trail then deviates to follow the Riverina Highway and continues to Wonga wetlands Visitor Centre where you can photograph the animal sculptures outside. We then ride back along the same route with a short  deviation up Waterview Road to see progress on the trail that will go around the Wonga Wetlands. Continuing along the trail we turn into Kremur st and then right onto the Riverina Highway (Padman drive). A short ride brings us to Frankie"s for a coffee. For those who want more of a challenge, there is a ride to the top of Monument hill and back down, an additional 1.4km but a very steep gradient. Return via  Padman drive, Kremur st and the bike path
