This ride starts at Epping and makes it way, mostly along back roads, down to the Parramatta River, crossing over the Gladesville Bridge. It then is mostly on cycle paths, while wending its way back along the foreshore of the Parramatta River with a coffee stop in Concord. We than continue along the river to Meadowbank. From there it is uphill and on roads again back to Epping. With a start at either 8 or 9 (depending on the season), we should expect to be home for lunch.
