The original Epping Concord Boomerang was often ridden in reverse order. This ride documents this. There are some changes through Concord, as a direct reversal of the route causes issues in some instances (traffic islands, etc). We ride down through West Ryde and onto Concord where we then proceed to Cabarita Park for a comfort stop. From there we proceed along the southern shore of Sydney Harbour through to Gladesville Bridge then Hunters Hill for coffee. Our return takes us up a few hills through Ryde and back to Epping. The ride uses a mixture of shared cycleways, shoulders and quieter backstreets however there are a couple of small sections on busier roads.

Keeping us COVID-safe:
- Pre-registration is compulsory. There are no walk-ins.
- Physical distancing of 1.5 metres should be observed where possible.
- All riders are encouraged to bring hand sanitizer.
- Riders must not attend if sick, have Covid-19, influenza or symptoms of any communicable disease.
