Team Bicycle Network training ride - Sunday 5 October

Team Bicycle Network Sydney are getting ready for the Bupa Around the Bay in Melbourne but before we depart, we're doing a classic loop to Waterfall. We hope you'll join in. 


Depart 6:30am, Rapha Cycle Club,  4/410 Crown St, Surry Hills. Arrive early if you want coffee. Return, 9:54-10am (Depending on speed/size of group) 




Approximately 105km - See Strava

Starting at Rapha Cycle Club the group will head south towards Anzac Parade and down to La Perouse before turning onto Foreshore Drive. We'll head towards Brighton and onto the Grand Parade right to the end where we'll duck into sunny Dolls Point. After Dolls the group will ride over the Captain Cook Bridge through to Miranda. We'll ride through Sutherland and jump onto the cycle lane along the Princess Highway. From here it's a straight run to Waterfall before we turn around for the quick run home.

There will be time to stop at Sutherland for drink refills and refreshments before we take a similar route back into the city. The group will however, turn left shortly after the airport tunnel and take the back way through Ross Smith Avenue and Botany Road into the city.

Who:   Led by Cameron, Alex and Anna of Team Bicycle Network
