Suggest road bikes only for this ride. But if you want to ride other bikes we might split into two groups.

Hi Bill, no worries if you want to ride the mountain bike. I was just trying to recommend a style of bike. We might split into a couple of groups and we can regroup at certain points along the way. We are not too serious - so lets just have some fun. Please come along no matter what bike you ride.

Hi Paige, Yes pending lockdown. The plan is to use the cycle paths & footpaths all the way. We will have some road crossings (about 4). We use all available underpasses. Will be glad for you to join the ride.

I’m a little road scared - even having done MS Sydney to Gong twice - being in a group ride helps me relax more.

All pending lockdown 😣

I have an ebike so hopefully I will be able to join without any issues. How much β€˜road’ riding ???

Was thinking of changing the route to do a loop. So we would turn left at Melrose high then head to the Tuggeranong parkway, then ride the path back into lake Tuggeranong. Have a look at the new map?
