We'll leave Bar Italia at 8.30am and take a route through the inner western suburbs to Sydney Olympic Park and Homebush Bay.
Crossing Sylverwater Bridge, we'll follow the Parramatta Cycle Path to Parramatta.
Exiting Parramatta Park to the west we'll join the path in Queens Street & head off to join Old Windsor Road/Windsor Road on a path all the way to Rouse Hill Shopping Centre for coffee. That's a bit over 40km.
After coffee there's a choice: Ride up Schofields Road to Schofields Station to catch a train back or alternatively retrace our steps a short way to Seven Hills Station.
