Riders - Kim, Dave

I had a cold - so didn't want to do anything too strenuous - so a ride around Homebush Bay with Kim sounded like a good idea. It was a very pleasant day of riding with plenty to see (and hear).

Above - Google earth GPS plot of the Homebush Bay Loop. This was close to 40 kms - including the spiral tracks up the three hills. A Google Maps version including the ride I did along the Cooks River to get to Homebush Bay can be found here.
