Riders - Digi Dave, Albert, Dave N

This was an evening ride from the Cooks River to (near) the George River. Thanks to Digi Dave for organising  this ride. We ventured out on a Tuesday evening - starting a little after 6pm from Canterbury. The total distance was about 36 km - this was out and back along a different path and then to Marrickville for a post ride feed.

We started at the old sugar works at Canterbury
