This is a shorter, more cruisy ride than most Richard leads. Some of the route is on moderate-traffic roads, but plenty is on SUPs.

Suitable only for experienced, fit, flowing road cyclists used to riding 50+km in a day, maintaining 22kph on flat smooth surface, AND FAST TRAFFIC PASSING CLOSE.
This route milks the forecast NW breeze, and is intermittently near rail-bail options. Route may change if rain threatens.
Coffee after only 12km at Backshed Cafe, Kings Langley. Lunch after 51km at Macchina Espresso, Kingsgrove.
Optional swim/surf at end :) Trains from Cronulla quarter-hourly, taking approx 50 mins to Central.
