Description


Ride along the Parramatta Valley Cycleway to Silverwater Bridge. Cross the river and travel along the River Walk past Newington Armoury Wharf on your way to the Woo-la-ra marker. Climb to the top and enjoy the 360 degree view. Ride down off the marker and head for Wentworth Common and the top of the Bay Marker. Drop down off the Bay Marker and follow Haslams Creek over Kronos Hill to Olympic Boulevard. Travel through the Olympic Precinct past the major sporting venues and on to Bicentennial Park. Exit the park and enjoy the quiet back streets as you wind your way to Concord for coffee. After coffee return to the start via Brays Park Reserve and the John Whitton Bridge.

Notes: This is a pleasant ride along bike paths and some quieter suburban roads. Due to road closures around Sydney Olympic Park we may need to divert and use the shoulder cycle lane for around 1km to access Bicentennial Park.Coffee will be at Concord before returning to Meadowbank.
