So today I stuck the bike in the car & headed to Turramurra to meet up with my mate Dave who some of you may know to do the run out to West Head and back.
I've not ridden a great deal in that part of the world (1 Xmas adventure ride a few years back, and a few 3 Gorges loops) but what a glorious ride it is. Great road surfaces, some wonderful views, plenty of cyclists out and about (so the driving was brilliantly respectful), great bike lanes on the busy roads, both a good bike shop & cracking cafe at the start/finish and plenty of parking/next to the train station
It's not though an easy ride. Notably tougher than Waterfall in my opinion. It was only a 65km ride, but there's 800-1000m of vertical there (compared to 78 and 500 on Waterfall). Nothing brutally steep, but the rollers West Head offer are harsh and plentiful.
You could gnaw off a few km by starting in West Turramurra - Pentacost Rd your best bet I reckon.
Well worth a jaunt north if you fancy something different.
