This ride is an exploration of the greenways around Kellyville & North Kellyville. It wanders through public reserves and sports fields which are linked by cyclepaths, notably a long section paralleling Smalls Creek. After dipping through Bernie Mullane Sports Complex and Fred Caterson Park, we cross Windsor Rd and head through Bella Vista where we cross the new Memorial Road cycle bridge and the older Windsor Road cycle bridge. From here, we climb up to Turkeys Nest Reserve in Beaumont Hills where we enjoy a panoramic view west stretching from Bella Vista to Rouse Hill. After this, we cruise to coffee at The Local Shed which is situated on the site of pioneering Mungerie House; before a short ride back to Kellyville Metro station.
