This is a ride along the Parramatta River to Meadowbank and Bicentennial Park. We start in Baulkham Hills and follow Quarry Creek down to Toongabbie Creek and onwards crossing Toongabbie Creek 5 times, the last time just upstream of the junction with Darling Mills Creek - the start of the Parramatta River. We then follow the Parramatta River along to Meadowbank crossing it 4 times, the last crossing taking us from Meadowbank to Rhodes. We then track along Homebush Bay and Bicentennial Park to Lillies for coffee.

After Lillies we ride through Sydney Olympic Park to find the river again at Newington Armory Wharf. We ride back to Silverwater Bridge to cross the river once again. We then follow the river back towards Parramatta taking a different route via streets in North Parramatta and Cumerbland hospital. We then rejoin the outwards route in Westmead and follow it back to the start, climbimg gradually from Old Toongabbie back to Baulkham Hills.
