Ride Summary

Ride commences and ends at the Meadowbank ferry wharf, and proceeds over the Ryde Bridge, through Concord and Croydon via road and shared paths through to the Cooks River shared path. After riding briefly on the Cooks River, group will proceed along the Cup and Saucer Creek, then head towards Beverly Hills, Kingsgrove, Oatley and then over the Como bridge to Como.


Coffee will be enjoyed in Como overlooking the Georges River. With a longer stop, riders could choose to take a dip in either the tidal river netted pool, or the Como swimming pool which also overlooks the Georges River next to the Cafe. (Check operating times).


After coffee, the ride will essentially retrace the route with variations. On reaching Cooks River, the group will enjoy the Bike North much loved Cooks River shared path back to Sydney Olympic Park to return to Meadowbank.
