Many Canberra cyclists will ride to Lake George and back for their weekly Sunday ride.
This ride starts in Sutton and takes us for a short section over the Federal Highway that connects Canberra and Sydney, to continue along the famous Tulip Farm on the old Federal Highway to Lake George.
Lake George itself was once full and used for sailing and other watersports. After having been dry for many years due to the drought, it has started to fill up again, thanks to the excessive rainfall over the last year. The ride takes you over a very quiet road, with the main climb being the Washing Machine Hill Climb. Named after the field next to it, that was once filled with hundreds of old washing machines, fridges, freezers, etc!
