In 2019 we revert to our stunning southern loop, with a few new tweaks. The main event will leave from a brand new start point at the Mingara Recreation Club and then tackle the Old Pacific Highway, winding down the coast to the uber twisty Galston Gorge.
We’ll pop up out of the gorge, set sights for the historic hill climb of Springwood and then meander through the Blue Mountains before stopping for a track walk at Catalina Park, a now deserted race track of yesteryear.
The final part of the day will see us through travel through some breathtaking country, as we divert through the Darling Causeway to Bell and Lithgow, before rolling on to Rylstone for the warmth of the many open fireplaces of the Globe Hotel.
