Celebrate cycling in Lane Cove by joining Lane Cove Council’s Bicycle Advisory Committee for the 4th annual Lane Cove Big Family Fun Ride, Sunday 18th September. The ride starts at 11am, at the corner of Epping Road and Longueville Road.
Everyone is welcome, from young children on scooters and balance bikes to experienced cyclists and E-bikes. There will be three routes to accommodate varying cycling abilities, all concluding at Blackman Park.
The “Beginners’ Route” is 2.3 km and mainly downhill, on a gentle gradient, along the Epping Road Cycleway, quiet streets and footpaths. This route will be led by the Mayor, Deborah Hutchins and is recommended for young children on bikes and scooters, accompanied by an adult. View the route:https://ridewithgps.com/trips/6107051
The “Intermediate Route,” led by the Deputy Mayor, Marc Gold, is for riders who are competent to ride 4.9 km. It follows the Longueville Road footpath to the corner of River Road West. From there it joins the River Rd West to Penrose St. SUP, with deviations to avoid steep hills. View the route:https://ridewithgps.com/trips/6106921
More Accomplished Rider Route
The “More Accomplished Rider Route” caters for cyclists who are happy to ride the hills of Lane Cove and also limited off-road terrain. Led by Don Murchison, Chairperson of Lane Cove’s Bicycle Advisory Committee, the 11.6 km takes cyclists down the Epping Road Cycleway to St Leonards Station, Gore Hill Cemetery, Morven Gardens and the River Road SUP, where it joins the Intermediate Route at River Road West.
