Sydney - Ettalong Ride

Sydney - Ettalong Ride

Postby Nate » Tue Oct 04, 2011 9:13 am

Just finished a ride to Ettalong & back... SENSATIONAL!

Chatty - Hornsby - Ettalong (stop for lunch)
Ferry to Palmy & then ride home.

All up 140kms (will have to do West head on the way back & Akuna & crack the imperial ton) (AT) 25.8km/h (the other guys were slowing me up)...
A MUST do for anyone - it was an incredibly georgous day & a really really nice ride

A big +1 to that ride and any I've done up the old highway. Beautiful part of the world and especially on a bike :).

Nah. Just ride back as well and crack the double century :).

(BTW climbing out of the central coast is harder than any climb on the way there :twisted:).

Nate,

You wouldn't happen to have the route would you, via garmin maybe ?
I suspect you went via brooklyn bridge.

I did a similar ride a couple of years ago. It is a really scenic ride with the added bonus of a boat ride across to Palm Beach. :D

black4tress, I mapped the route with the garmin. Below is the link, which I think is simliar to the route Nate took.
