This ride extends the classic route to Mt White to include two additional climbs of Mooney Mooney.

We travel along the Pacific Highway to Pie in the Sky after which the bulk of our descending and climbing begins.
The descents and climbs of both sides of Mooney Mooney are along quiet isolated roads. However, care needs to be taken as the roads can be quite slippery and there can be significant amount of debris.

There are no bail out points after Cowan station and one needs to make sure that their bikes and bodies are sound lest you risk a very expensive taxi ride home.

The final climb of Brooklyn and the return along the highway can be challenging as traffic is often heavier and the legs wearier.

Notes: NB: some disruption to T1 Train Line (City Circle and lower North Shore) please check TNSW website for details if planning to commute to start
