Cattai - Pitt Town route

Postby maxx_hills » Mon Jul 24, 2017 3:43 pm

Hi All,

I'm after some advice on riding in Cattai, Pitt Town area. My planned route is:

OlD Windsor road > Pitt Town road > Catai road > Pitt Town Dural road > Boundary road > OlD Windsor road

I would like to know if it's safe to ride on above mentioned roads. I know some of those roads have 80kh speed and single lane.

Thanks in advanced.

I rode some of those just last week. I wanted to ride to Pitt Town however Pitt Town rd from Old Windsor rd in seemed a little busy with no shoulder. I decided to turn off and ride through Oakville back on to Old Windsor Rd via Annangrove Rd and it wasn't bad.

The small section I rode on Pitt Town rd appeared shocking and probably didn't help being close shaved along there too.

It can be a bit confusing, as there are a few bits of road in the area called "pitt town road" as well as "old pitt town road". I presume when you mention Pitt town road you mean the bit going from windsor rd at McGraths Hill to Pitt town. I ride that that bit of road all the time, but it is not the best, narrow shoulder and heavy traffic. If you want to go in that direction you can minimise your time on the road by doing a detour on a loop down Pitt town bottoms rd. You won't see a car on that rd.

Likewise I am not a fan of boundary rd. Too busy, narrow shoulders etc. You can minimise your time on that rd by dodging off onto midson rd, which runs parallel, and again you won't see a car. (note you can't get through to midson from the scheyville rd, even though maps may show this, you need to go up boundary a bit, then go up a side rd such as martin rd). There are lots of ways you could go from there that are roughly parallel to boundary rd, but a lot quieter. Eg old pitt town rd, henckel rd, bocks rd, chapman rd etc, or lots of similar ways.

I do lots of riding out there, and there are some great roads. Mclymonts is one of my favourites. Virtually no traffic, steep climbs and nice scenery. Try and get that into one of your rides :wink:
