This is all good to know. The next time i do the 3 Gorges i shall take a detour down and back up Somerville then on the way to Galston.
Now back to Xplora's thread
2013 Lynskey R230. 2001 Lemond Buenos Aires.
Anyone keen for Friday? There is plenty of opportunity to bail out on a number of those climbs, if you want to come but can't handle that much climbing. Probably waiting at the top with me lol
Would start at Sam Riley Drive at 7. It's all day, no point rushing to wake up in the dark.
not me, only have until about lunchtime free on Friday and cant ride at all this weekend (well until after lunch sunday)
I like the following. This has more variety.
-crosslands (down the end of somerville in hornsby)
-Mt White, onto Calga, turn right and then down and up,,,,
-Old Mooney Mooney. This has a nice new surface. Turn around at the top (where the bridge collapse was a few years ago).
-Old Mooney Mooney (southbound)
-Pie in the Sky (Berowra)
If you are feeling your oats after Pie in the Sky (not me) you can turn right and do the loop back including,,,,,
-Crosslands Reserve (not road)
Slightly off the OP, one of my favourites is the big loop.
From home venture up the Old Pacific Hwy taking as many gorges in as you choose. After Calga go onto Peats Ridge Rd to Central Mangrove. Descend down Wisemans Ferry Rd past Spencer. Cross the river at Wisemans Ferry and keep going taking the low road, River Rd (not up the Old Nothern Rd). This takes you to the Sackville ferry. Magnificient views all the way, almost car free, good road surface (there is about 1km of good quality gravel). Cross on the ferry to Ebenezer, then back to Windsor and limp back home. About 250km and 3500m. A truly fantastic ride.
