Well, unfortunately I'm going to have to pass on most of those dates... I'm off on a cruise to New Zealand tomorrow and don't get back till the 18th.

I'll fill in closer to the dates.
Quang, not too much jetlag in there I don't think; not much longtitude change. :|
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

No set plan, maybe Prospect canal out to Wetherill Park, follow the T-way to Hoxton park, Cowpasture road to Prestons, M7 back to Horsely Park, then back to Prospect dam, Guildford.... Start 6 ish

I could meet you on the canal path at the corner of Gipps/Greystanes rd near Macquarie rd? What time do you think you would be there?

Recumbenteer and I did a great ride today - from Seven Hills (for me) and Fairfield (for him) all the way to the Prestons Maccas, wait for it,.... without cycling on the M7 cycle way!
I didn't know there were such good cycle paths all the way through south western Sydney. I'd only ever been on the M7 cycle way. Thanks recumbenteer!

So, who is in for next weekend?

Only issue with those paths is that there's no signage. Without someone who knows the way, youre bound to get lost. I wouldve gone along today if I managed to wake up on time, but one day wasnt enough to adjust to Aus time.

Where are we going?

What paths did you take around Western Sydney? Speaking of lost, I attempted the canal path from SOP and got lost where the detour is in place for Prospect Reservoir. Took a wrong turn and ended up heading back to Fairfield way lol.

Saturday, I have offered to show someone how to get from Homebush to Botany Bay, so that is one option. Would need to get home by 11:30 am for parental responsibilities.

Sunday I am open to suggestions

Hey tez001,

We took the Prospect Canal to Reconcilliation Rd..then the T-Way through to Hoxton Park. Cowpasture rd/ Camden Valley Way to Prestons.

A bit of the M7 for the return leg as well.

Excellent Isabella24, find_bruce & recumbenteer - who else can make it Saturday for a 7 am start at Lilies at Homebush down to Brighton le Sands - a nice easy 24 km & return



More importantly who knows a good coffee shop at Brighton le Sands ?
