Description


A scenic longer ride looping north with a ferry across cross Broken Bay.

Travel via Mona Vale Rd and McCarrs Ck Rd past Church Point and Bayview, then through Newport and up over the Bilgola bends. After Avalon turn right for quiet roads with views over Whale Beach. Then if time permits, grab a quick coffee before the ferry leaves. Depart the Ferry at Ettalong and ride through to Woy Woy and West Gosford alongside Brisbane waters.

Climb the Central Coast Highway up to Kariong, then follow the Old Pacific Highway through Mooney Mooney and past Mt White before descending to the Hawkesbury and the last main climb up Brooklyn. After refuelling, a gentle roll back to Mt Colah and for those with fresh legs an optional descent and climb via Bobbin Head to Turramurra.
