Location image of event venue


A challenger ride traversing through scenic rural landscape.

Distance: Approx 85km
Grade: 7.5/10 (MediumHard) - 5/10 (Medium) if you finish at Windsor!!
Starts: Springwood Railway Station
Ends: Hornsby Railway Station

Easy downhill start to the Yarramundi valley. Mild undulations to Windsor for our first food/drink stop.
After Windsor making sure you have full water bottles, we head onto Pitt Town, Maraylya, Catti, Glenorie,
Arcadia, Berowra Waters and finally Hornsby. One long hill climb out of Catti Gorge.

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

We will encounter traffic out from Springwood initially (good shoulder), between Windsor and Pitt Town and again around Berowra and Hornsby. Bring snacks/water/sunscreen.

Catch the Blue Mountains express train from Central (7.24am) or Strathfield (7.38). Arrives Springwood 8.44
** Second train lead by Richard to leave Central (7.54am) arriving at Springwood (9.11). **
I would encourage those who are quicker riders to catch the second train to spread the load with the expected big turn out for this ride. Thanks
