An event every 4 weeks that begins at 8:00 am on Sunday, repeating indefinitely

  • Meeting point: North Rd & University Ave intersection –  Australian National University (ANU)
    When: Sundays at 8am
    Coffee: The Handlebar Cafe, Stromlo Forest Park
    Distance: Around 70kms, plus return after coffee
    Ability: All welcome – there are usually 1-2 groups depending on numbers
Starting at ANU, the group will be head out (in one group to start with) towards Stromlo via Commonwealth Ave – Adelaide Ave – Cotter Road.
For the south siders, the bunch will swing past the Stromlo Pavilion around 8.30-8.45am. Depending on numbers, riders will then split into at least two groups (fast/slower), then head down Uriarra Road towards Uriarra Crossing.
After the bridge (before the climb out), turn right onto Fairlight Rd and head up into NSW, turning right on Mountain Creek Rd (regroup here).
It’s then another 6km to the top of the climb where the first turnaround point is for the slower groups. The faster group will proceed along Mountain Creek Rd for about 15km to the Ledgers Creek Homestead and turn around there.
It’s then all about retracing your steps, back up the Three Sisters then finish at the Handlebar for coffee. As the ride will be outside of Canberra, please ensure you pack enough water, food and spares to be self-sufficient.
