A challenger ride traversing through scenic rural landscape.

Distance: Approx 85km
Grade: 7.5/10 (MediumHard) - 5/10 (Medium) if you finish at Windsor!!

Easy downhill start to the Yarramundi valley. Mild undulations to Windsor for our first food/drink stop.

We can stop again at Arcadia for drinks before heading onto our next food stop at Berowra Waters.

Thanks Grant for a great ride / adventure and for waiting for me at the end. Sorry I didn't get to say goodbye as my train was about to depart! Cheers, Ross

The ride will proceed tomorrow as planned. I suggest people bring along a rain jacket.
If it's too wet, there is the option of catching the train home from Windsor.
I shall be boarding the train at Strathfield. Grant
