Sunday was a nice day to head out on the bike for a ride. My route was almost all off road - and on cycleways. I rode along the Cooks River Cycleway from Dulwich Hill, then up the Cup and saucer Creek Cycleway (part of which was closed - still!) - and then along roads to the M5 Cycleway (through Linear Park). I followed this to Salt Pan Creek and then along a cycleway to Bankstown. Then along roads for about 5km to the cycleway along the Georges River - Chipping Norton area to join up with the Fairfield - Orphan Creek Cycleway to Prospect Reservoir. Then I continued along the aqueduct cycelay to Guildford and then along the Cycleway to Parramatta. A km or two of street cycyling - to join the Parramatta Valley Cycleway to Silverwater Bridge. I crossed the river at the bridge and then went through Blaxland Riverside Park to Newington Armoury and through Homebush Bay to Homebush and picke up the Cooks River Cycleway again which took me all the way home. A map of the ride can be found here.

The whole ride was about 98 km.

I took a camera and grabbed a few shots on the way.
