A ride through Artarmon and Mosman for magnificent coastal views at Balmoral, Chowder Bay Bradleys Head and Taronga Zoo. The ride route takes you through the backstreets and up and down all the hills in the area so you can test your climbing skills. Toilet stop at Balmoral. Coffee at Georges Heights or near return to Artarmon. We use designated cycle routes missing some of the bigger hills but keeping enough in the mix to allow you to continue your climbing practice. Return to Artarmon via Mosman and Cowles Rd using the designated cycle route.

Notes: Pre-registration is required. Note special start North Sydney. Very hilly ride will be lead quickly, with flat sections at a Brisk pace where practical. In the event of poor weather the ride may be cancelled, please check the Bike North website.
