Thanks for that. In fact, I tried your route a couple of times ... and it nearly damn killed me! (On an old hybrid and pretty unfit, mind you.) I should give it another go. In the meantime, I discovered the bike path between Kissing Pt Road and M2, so now I'm riding from Thornleigh to Waitara Station, then following the back roads next to railway down to Turramurra, where I flick across Pacific Hwy on to Kissing Pt Road. About 40 minutes going to work and around 55 minutes coming home, 33km for the return trip. A few steep hills, but that's the only way middle-aged blokes like me will ever get fit!
Hi Simon, that is a reasonable route to use. I use that on occasion to get back Hornsby Heights. If it rains heavily, you might have to find an alternate route because the bike path that continues from Kissing pt rd can get flooded. I only had to deal with 5cm of water once, but I recommend getting off the bike to cross affected area.
