Event description

Description

This is the 6th annual Big Family Fun Ride for Lane Cove. It is a great relaxing and friendly outing for families and people of all ages. You don’t need to be an ‘expert’ cyclist to participate. There are three routes to cater for different cycling ability. We welcome you all to join us.

The “Beginners’ Route” is 2.3 km and mainly downhill, on a gentle gradient, along the Epping Road Cycleway, quiet streets and footpaths. This route is recommended for young children on bikes and scooters, accompanied by an adult. View the route: https://ridewithgps.com/trips/6107051

The “Intermediate Route” is for riders who are competent to ride 4.9 km. It follows the Longueville Road footpath to the corner of River Road West. From there it joins the River Rd West to Penrose St. SUP, with deviations to avoid steep hills. View the route: https://ridewithgps.com/trips/6106921

The “Accomplished Riders' Route” caters for cyclists who are happy to ride the hills of Lane Cove and also limited off-road terrain. Led by Don Murchison, Chairperson of Lane Cove’s Bicycle Advisory Committee, the 11.6 km takes cyclists down the Epping Road Cycleway to St Leonards Station, Gore Hill Cemetery, Morven Gardens and the River Road SUP, where it joins the Intermediate Route at River Road West.

All rides finish at Blackman Park where you can enjoy a sausage sizzle, live music, activities, face painting and the kids play area. The sausage sizzle and a drink are included in the entry price. There are no refunds, but tickets can be transferable.

You can register as a family, or individual. It is not necessary for every family member to be on the same ride, but children must be accompanied by a responsible adult. It is possible to change the ride you are on, on the day, but helpful to the organisers to have an indication of anticipated numbers for each ride. The entry price is the same for children and adults, and kept low thanks to the support of the Lane Cove Council.
