Description


Start at Meadowbank. We then go onto the John Whitton bridge into Olympic Park and past the Olympic Stadium and from thereon we go towards Newington. We cross Silverwater Road and then follow the M4 and then onto Holroyd Gardens for a toilet stop. We then go back on the road and past Guildford railway station follow the rail trail towards Fairfield where there is a very sharp turn. We find our way to Prospect Creek and go onto Reconciliation Road and on for coffee and toilet stop at Pemulwuy. After coffee we go back via the Lower Prospect Canal Viaduct, onto the rail trail towards the M4 and back over Silverwater Bridge and follow the Parramatta River to Meadowbank.

Riders should note that much of this ride is on cycleways which often are splashed with glass, so all riders should carry spare tubes and a working pump or CO2 canisters. Riders who are not competent replacing a tube should make themselves known to the ride leader before setting off on the ride

An additional hazard associated with this ride is heat during the summer period. Water stops are not that accessible so riders should be well hydrated and carry two water bottles with at least one with electrolyte in summer periods.

Pre-registration is required through the Bike North website link
