Just a heads up...
The Ride to Conquer Cancer will be making extensive use of cycleways between Sydney Olympic
Park and Camden on Saturday and/or Sunday.
It will affect the Sydney Olympic Park precinct, parts of the Parramatta River Cycleway, M7 Cycleway,
Prospect Canal Cycleway and Liverpool Rail Trail.
Detailed maps here Saturday's Route and Sunday's Route
Be prepared to share the cycleways if they're your usual haunt.

Are they going to re-open the prospect reservoir again, after closing it for nearly a week just for this? Have they started construction works already?
Heads up too for any riders going through the Canal Cycleway - keep your eyes open for Brown snakes. They are out and about, one tried to attack me on Monday afternoon.
Thanks, I had planned to ride the M7 this Sunday - think I will take another route
Sorry guys but those maps are last years.. below are this years maps
Looks like the Sydney Ride to Conquer Cancer this year is having the overnight camp in Winsor. That should provide a bit of a different route to the last 2 years finishing in Camden.
Isn't the marathon on this weekend on the M7?
RTCC is on Oct 11-12.
I was trying to see if I could find the route for this ride just out of interest as someone I know is entering in it and I may be helping him prepare for it (it's probably the first time he has done anything like that).
If it stops in Windsor, then that will be a lot easier as the riding out that way isn't all that bad.
I did it last year. Here's the route, but I did start from home. Just look at the route once it leaves SOP. it's nowhere near Windsor and I assume it'll be the same route this year too. A great, well organised two days. Thoroughly recommend it.
Oops, my bad. The overnight stay is at Freemans Reach this year. Good chance of passing through Windsor then.
That will be good to get a different route and new vistas.
Still fundraising though...
Ah, that's a nice ride out that way. It's not too hard. I've been out that way once.
Go join the Trek Rouse hill ride when they go at 6:30am in the morning (IIRC) - you'll get lots of practice riding that route. They go to Freemans Reach most of the time and back for a coffee at Rouse Hill shopping centre.
