Follows old Pacific Highway north for 40km with two climbs of 150+M with gradient always well less than 10%. Coffee can be taken after the first climb (Mt White) or after the second, with minor diversion along Pile Rd, Somersby (weekdays only). The ride then descends 170M evenly over 3km down Central Coast Highway to West Gosford, mainly on shoulder, and remains flat-ish and north-bound thereafter. There are 9km along the pleasant Narara Valley, 3km through Ourimbah along the shoulder of the old highway, 7km on fast flat shoulder of Enterprise Rd, and a final 2+km shared path to Tuggerah Station. Lunch can be at Tuggerah or takeaway for the train home. Or, on weekdays, have a peaceful, picturesque interlude outside the Uni cafeteria, 10km before Tuggerah. The first and last sections of this ride are near rail-bail chances, but not the middle section.

Notes: Tailwind predicted! Coffee stop after 24km.2 trains back from Tuggerah per hour. "Slower" train does not stop at Berowra, so consider parking at Hornsby and catching 7:37 train to Berowra.
