The Big Loop - A city ride mainly along cycle tracks - 7 February 2010

This a loop almost 100km in length along some of the best cycleways in Sydney. I started off along the Cooks River Cycleway at Dulwich Hill and followed it to Homebush. Then to Homebush Bay and along the Parramatta Cycleway to Harris Park - then to Guildford - and almost out to Prospect - back via Prospect Ck Cycleway, then past Chipping Norton Lakes, along roads to Bankstown. Then along the Salt Pan Ck Cycleway to meet up with the M5 Cycleway back to near Earlwood - then along the Cup and Saucer Ck Cycleway to the Cooks River.
