Saturday 25th March
Meet at the Acton Ferry Terminal, Barrine Dr, Acton, at 8.15 for an 8.30 start. We will then go round the West Basin of the lake, past the National Museum, over Scrivener Dam, past Yarralumla, past the Yacht Club and then stop at the National Library for Coffee. We will then head off after coffee past Bowen Park and Kingston through the wetlands at Jerrabomberra past Regatta Point and back to Acton Ferry Terminal. It is about 31-33 kms.
Further Horizons is a cycling group aiming at graduates of New Horizons, to keep them riding in a supportive and non-competitive atmosphere.
We generally ride 30 – 40km at an average speed of 15 – 19km/hr, and mostly on cycle paths or quiet roads. We continue the New Horizons behaviours by continuing to ride on Saturday mornings, calling out about approaching riders/pedestrians or problems to the others in the group, and we have a clear leader and tail to keep the group together.
Each week has a new leader and a different route, allowing participants to explore parts of Canberra that they wouldn’t otherwise ride, and to share routes that they know and love. Participants are not limited to New Horizons graduates, but people interested in joining should understand that we travel as a group, with frequent stops, and with the emphasis on socialising and having fun.
