Meet at the Ferry Terminal, Barrine Dr, Acton, at 8.15 for an 8.30 am start. We will follow the edge of the lake to Scrivener Dam, then follow the Molonglo River cycle path to Sakeena’s at Cooleman Ct. Back the same way to the lake, then complete the loop around the west basin and back to the start. About 32 km, all on cycle paths.
Saturday 27th January
No ride due to Australia Day long weekend. Have a sleep in and we’ll see you next Saturday.
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.
