Cycling in Sydney Australia
The family went on a decently long ride today - almost 40km - 90% on dirt is decently long for anybody and the longest the family has ever done as a group.
Beautiful weather. Loads of goannas. No snakes. A few yellow tailed black cockatoos.
Unfortunately, we did not make it to our planned destination - the track got too sandy and boggy for the kids - we would have ended up wheeling the bikes and the kids would have lost it on the way back. We ended up 6 hours all up as it was.
We stopped in at another beach on the way back as a consolation prize. Nothing like a nice dip of the toes at a lovely little freshwater beach to ease pedal stresses on way back!
Dunno why, but I get a little buzz out of catching a car ferry by bike.
The ferry driver even gave us a 50% discount both ways - He couldn't have charged the four of us $2 each - that would have been more than if we went by car!
BTW, all the clues for the exact location of this ferry are on this page right now!
Certainly is a great location for family riding. Miles of pretty well maintained trails.
Virtually no hills :~)
