Route Suggestions

Postby JB » Mon Jan 14, 2008 11:07 am

I commute most days (approx 10Km).

Problem is I'm scratching my head trying to come up with a suitable route to extend my commute by another 10-15 km.

Currently I begin from East Vic Pk, down Berwick St, and onto the South River Cycle Path, across the Narrows Bridge to the Bell Tower, then up on to St Georges. At most 10 km.

I'm open to suggestions if anyone has some ideas...(apart from shifting to Freo.)

cheers

Well, my first suggestion would be to go the other way once you hit the river and head down past the Casino and across the river at East Perth then back down to the Terrace. Should add a few Ks.

Next suggestion would be to to do a loop down the river to Crawley/Nedlands and back (maybe via Kings Park). I do this particular add on loop on my commute about once a week if you were interested in meeting up.

I am just trying for the life of me to figure out what the heck the automatic 'net nanny' in this forum software blatted out here.

Could there be anything so crude or risquè around our beautiful city foreshore?

:D

But a serious answer to the original question;

I used to live right near the Como Pub on Canning H'way (god awful old Main Roads Dept owned Rental *shudder*) and commuted into the city. Most directly it was 5Ks over the narrows. After a while I started hooking away from the city, through the 'burbs and coming out on the Freeway bike Path anywhere south of the Como Jetty and then turning back towards the city from there.

I think I peaked at about 25km one way coming out at the last pedestrian overpass north of the Mt Henry Bridge, heading over the Bridge, then loop back North again on the west bank of the Canning in Mt Pleasant, skirting the Raffles, back over the Canning Bridge and North into the City from there, over the Narrows etc again.

I reckon if you cut through St James/Curtin/Manning/Mt Henry you could have some nice extra distance and still have the nice extra run along the river. Google map the possibilties ;)

+1 on the the whole go down past Crawley to Nedlands, and then head up King's Park...

Gives you a 3-4km flat nice bike path along Mounts Bay Rd. where you can often hammer into the wind, and then a choice of hilly bits going up King's Park. I do this route as well.
