This ride is a classic off-road cycle route from Meadowbank to Marrickville, 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 the Marrickville for a greek coffee.

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.

At Marrickville we head to a favourite Greek coffee shop (Georgia's Kitchen), but you can choose one of the many coffee and cake shops in the area.

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.
