Ride Description

Ride Description

3 Gorges – Showcases some of Sydney’s best climbs none of which are too steep. Beautiful descents and waterways with a short ferry ride at Berowra which makes for a good refuelling point before the third and last climb. Because they are gorges you can get a variety of weather patterns which caters for the photography enthusiast! Many sträva segments throughout if you feel the urge to flex and show your mates who is the boss! A good hard ride with rolling terrain between gorges and beautiful too.

We have a range of other rides to take in the Harbour and surrounds in Sydney :-

North Harbour Punch

Bays & Bondi Alps

West Head & Akuna Bay

Ride Leaders

Alanna – Sydney

Always up for an adventure Alanna enjoys a range of cycling, from seven day tours to morning commutes she's always out on the bike. This year she competed in Amy’s Gran Fondo on the Great Ocean Road but missed out on UCI qualifications by just 4 minutes! However she did win the Tour of New Zealand in April and even came “second” in the men's individuals. Aside from these impressive races she describes herself as a weekend warrior and weekday hubbard! Loves going fast, slow, up hill, down hill, whatever! so long as her wheels remain on the ground. Alanna takes cycling to a whole new level when she throws in a cheeky ride on her penny farthing bike - Grasshopper, her pride and joy!

He's done some big solo rides from 150-200+km exploring all the climbs in the Royal National Park, south of Sydney.
