Rider - Dave

After having riden bit of the M7 cycleway on the preseeding weekends - I was keen to explore the rest of it. I started out along the Cooks River Cycleway and went to Homebush, then out to Homebush Bay and along the Parramatta River Cycleway to Parramatta. Then I went to Parramatta Park and continued along the cycleway to Old Windsor Rd to pick up the M7. This part of the ride was 40km. Then it was about another 40km along the M7 Cycleway - including a short detour to a scenic hill for lunch. I went home via the M5 - riding on the on-road cyclelane till King George Road - then I went along the off road cycleway, then through Earlwood to pick up the Cup and Saucer Ck Cycleway and then back a short way along the Cooks River. The whole ride was about 110km.

A Google Map of the gps log of the ride can be found here.
