This ride is a classic off-road cycle route from Meadowbank to Mascot, along with a number of short road sections which lead to, and then join up, the cycleway sections. We ride to Sydney Olympic Park then on road to South Strathfield before we pick up the Cooks River Cycleway which we follow to Tempe then, then the shared Path north of the Airport to Mascot for coffee. Return the same way.
The ride is mostly flat using the narrow cycleway. The route has many tight corners and slow sections requiring good cycle skills and good awareness of all path users. A bicycle bell is a must when riding on this route as we constantly slow and accelerate as we pass others.
