Description


This ride is Banana Pie minus the lung-busting climb out of Bobbin Head on the steep Mt Colah side. Starting at Turramurra station we will ride up through leafy Wahroonga to Hornsby and then take on the undulations of the Pacific Highway to Pie in the Sky for a pie and a coffee with a view. The return leg takes in Bobbin Head and the climb out the less steep N. Turramurra side. This is a good ride for people who want to step up a bit and challenge themselves with a ride that still includes some significant climbs.

Notes: Bobbo road is not great so we will head up and back via Waitara or equivalent

Pre-registration is required through the Bike North website link
