In 2019 we reverted to our stunning southern loop, with a few new tweaks. The main event departed from a brand new start point at the Mingara Recreation Club and then tackled the Old Pacific Highway, winding down the coast to the uber twisty Galston Gorge.
We popped up out of the gorge, set sights for the historic hill climb of Springwood and then meandered 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 saw us through travel through some breathtaking country, as we diverted 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.
Stay tuned for updates on our route for 2020.
