West to the Grass Farms

Bella Vista Metro Station , , AUSTRALIA
Scroll right for more


A brisk paced non-stop, traffic lights excepted, spin down the Old Windsor Rd on-road cycleway to Windsor then out onto the Richmond Lowlands and the quiet roads and lanes of the grass farms. (The pace through the lowlands will be slower as the road surface is poor in places so care and attention is required). The wide-open space of the grass farms is a great place to shake off the city for a while and breathe in some country air. Pastoral fragrances included free.

You will have to make sure to keep up your food and water intake so bring plenty of snacks and drinks - water available at Windsor. Coffee stop at Windsor on return.

There is no straightforward public transport bailout option on this ride.

In winter it is recommended that you have a good set of lights on your bike for visibility.

Notes: Deviations to check access options for new Windsor Bridge, and to return on backroads (e.g. Box Hill) rather than Windsor Rd, adding several km.
