Long and hilly ride on country roads to Wyong via Peats Ridge and Yarramalong. Return by train.This should not be your first ride with Bike North. Before attempting this ride you should be competent at rides such as Brooklyn Brunch, Akuna Bay. If in doubt, please contact the ride leader before attempting this ride.This is a challenging and scenic ride that allows the more capable rider to stretch out a bit without over-doing it. Sections of this ride may be run at a high pace for extended periods over undulating terrain.The ride features some significant climbing then a big, steep and challenging downhill run into Yarramalong where caution is required. After our stop for coffee, it is a brisk, flat run into Wyong for the train back to Sydney.For this ride, you should be self-sufficient as there are VERY limited bail-out options. Make sure your bike is in a good mechanical condition and that you bring a couple of spare tubes and some basic tools to affect minor repairs or else it could be a very, very long walk back to transport. You should also bring plenty of water and a few snacks as we do venture out into the middle of nowhere at times. This is particularly the case in the warmer months.

Notes: Sundays are pleasantly truck-minimal on Peats Ridge Rd. Coffee @ Mt White after 24km, lunch at Yarramalong after 61km. We'll aim for the "express" train back at 14:49, reaching Hornsby at 15:48, NOT stopping at Berowra. So better to park at Hornsby and train (8:37)/ride to Berowra. (The 15:14 from Wyong reaches Berowra at 16:18). We'll social-distance and check before coming.

Pre-registration is required through the Bike North website link
