Cycling Tuesday – 2011 December 6 – Guildford to Canley Vale Ride

This is definitely the long way. A ride via the Water Supply Pipeline, the Aquaduct, Prospect Reservoir, Western Sydney Regional Park and Orphan School Creek.

Marrickville to the city loop via Royal Botanic Gardens

I did a ride as sweep with Bike Marrickville.

Rockhampton to Mount Morgan Via Gracemere

Not many photos from this day. Not enough really, but it was raining lightly all day, so the camera spent most of it’s time in the water proof bag. I heard the rain falling overnight. When I awoke in the morning I found my thongs floating at the height of the grass in . . . → Read More: Rockhampton to Mount Morgan Via Gracemere

The Marrickville to Prospect Loop

Well, it was meant to be a loop, but I took a wrong turn, so it was more like a lasso. I started by rising to the cooks river trail. A route I regularly take.

Leichhardt Park Aquatic Centre and Callum Park

I went on a very hot day to the Leichhardt Park Aquatic Centre to meet up with the Leichhardt BUG and do a ride of Callum Park.
