A Sydney Weekend Adventure - 2
An introduction to the roads less travelled...

You may have ridden the Blue Mountains, Hawkesbury Valley, Kanangra and surrounding roads already, but how well do you really know your own backyard? Have you explored the gravel tracks littered throughout this beautiful region? Ridden the hidden twisties? Delighted at the oft-ignored vistas or enjoyed friendly country hospitality so close to the city?

Perhaps you’ve always wanted to but are concerned about losing your way, being out of your depth on unsealed roads or not having help in the event of a problem. Well now’s your chance to discover what’s really out there, all with some friendly support and a helping hand.

This tour is for riders new to gravel roads (or anyone less confident on anything other than asphalt) that are keen to discover what’s in those remote regions of the spectacular national parks and forests right on Sydney’s doorstep. The ride will take you north and west of the city into pristine forests and parkland, along the Hawkesbury River, through the Blue Mountains to Oberon and then a circuit south via Shooter's Hill and Wombeyan Caves with many other lesser known regions unfamiliar to the majority of those living in and around Sydney.

Ride summary:

Day 1
Leave the depot in Annandale and ride to Lower Portland via beautiful back roads parallel with the Hawkesbury River. You’ll cut across from Upper Colo to Bilpin for a break and undoubtedly an apple pie at the Bilpin Fruit Bowl. The Bells Line of Road may be sealed but it’s worth riding on any day of the year so you'll follow that through to Bell, where you’ll soon re-join the gravel for much of the way south and east to Oberon, our destination for the night.

There’s a combination of good, hard packed narrow gravel roads twisting and turning through the bush and some interesting, more challenging descents and climbs. Our accommodation is a great motel just a short walk to a great pub for friendly banter, good food and stories of adventure on the road!

Day 2
Sunday morning will see us leave Oberon heading south and hitting the gravel before Shooter’s Hill. It’s then gravel all the way south via Mount Werong and on to Womeyan Caves exploring the tracks and trails through pristine eucalypt forest. The road becomes incredibly tight and twisty almost all the way to Mittagong where there’s the choice of the motorway or Grand Pacific Drive and Royal National Park on the way hone depending on time. We’ll arrive late Sunday afternoon with a smile on our faces and a hunger for more!
