Rider - Dave

After I enjoyed a nice ride along the Hawkesbury the Saturday before, a friend pointed out the Audax ride for 8 May was a 150km loop from Hornsby to the Hawkesbury and back. Looking at the map - it looked like a great ride. I rode almost the same route - but in the reverse direction and ended a little earlier at Beecroft (because of very bad traffic on the road to Hornsby).

A map of  the ride can be found here.

A profile of the ride and Google Earth images can be found here.
