I'm planning on riding up to Katoomba next weekend (Saturday).
I'm coming from Baulkham Hills, but I'm thinking of catching a train to Penrith, and starting the ride from there
Start time from Penrith will probably be around 06:30.
- Has anybody done this ride recently?
- What sort of travel times are we looking at? I'm a moderately fit cyclist.
- What are the road conditions like? I'm coming on a road bike, so I'm hoping to stick to the roads if I can - but I'm not sure how feasible that is?
- Anybody seen what traffic's like early on a Saturday morning on that route?
I know there seem to be permanent roadworks on the Great Western Highway (http://www.rta.nsw.gov.au/roadprojects/ ... index.html), but I'm hoping that things have improved since last time I was up there.
