Upcoming Further Horizons rides:

Contact: Jenny Cleaver for more information

Saturday 22nd April

We will meet at the Ferry terminal at Barrine Dr, Acton, at 8.15 for an 8.30 start heading off towards the O’Connor Ridge.  The cycle path will follow Sullivan Creek through the grounds of the ANU, which will be picturesque with the autumn colours at their best this time of year. The path will then take us through Turner, O’Connor and along the O’Connor Nature Reserve as we head toward Lake Ginninderra. Taking in the views of the lake we will then continue up the path to the Jamison Centre for our morning coffee. A slow but gradual incline as we inch ourselves to the peak of the ride – cycling down the ridge towards the Glenloch Interchange and back to Acton. Approximately 33kms.  



General information

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.
