gosford > tour de brisbane water

central coast closets many cycleways. keen to come out, we had a well fit local guide, hank tank.

million paws walk was a happy interruption on our way, best shared path ever. the first half of this ride is on a cycleway right by the coastline with a number of private and public jetties we pried into.

million pawsto mark the first 10k you’ve go to stop at the woy woy fishermen’s wharf fish and chip shop, local favorite. you’ll know it’s the one because there are a pod of pelicans that plop on the roof.

the first 20k are a dreamboat, until you start wanting an actual dream boat.

brisbane waterswhen you get halfway, take a ferry across the lake which will replace 45 minutes of incline push with 35 mins of on water views. be sure to check the timetables, on weekends they’re not regular.

we missed the boat by 15 mins. so the hilly north, hello. the climbs aren’t quite as dramatic as prospect or manly but they are steady ups and downs. I think at least 6 big lumps on the main road.

we’re on road. beware of the all the glass. gravel and glass are sore bedfellows for thin tyres, a mountain bike is better off.

public jettythe second half of this ride was a cruiser challenge but a token if you’re in the area. this is a guide that we used for the tour de france brisbane water.

jetties are fun.

a quick thank you to knog who swiftly replaced my faulty blinder with a new one.
