why all the crap about HTFU :?:
i need my car to do a job in Megalong Valley, then have a few hrs free till i can go back there.
I thought about asking for some hills to ride up was HTFU enough.
Tough crowd to please it seems.
Maybe the cycleway is sufficent HTFU for some :wink: :wink:

i ended up doing this ride
http://connect.garmin.com/activity/75117233
nice area to ride in, quite roads, courteous drivers.
Climb is not so bad, not overly steep (max about 13%) but does sit on 8-10% for most of it.
Bit chilly up there, had long sleeve jersey and vest on and was just right :D

I was looking for a route from Jenolan caves to Blackheath without using the HWY. I think it exists but will require a mountain bike
