KIAMA TO ALBION PARK

A lovely ride from the sea towards the mountains but no major climbs to be found here but don't be fooled... The rolling terrain will keep you on your toes. Just watch out for the cows as we are visiting one of the more rural areas of the region.

THIRROUL TO BALD HILL

Thirroul to Bald hill is possibly the most popular "out and back" route for Wollongong locals. The views from Bald Hill looking back towards Wollongong are amazing and well worth the effort. The destination happens to be on the edge of the RNP (continue for a longer ride). It is also the Grand Depart of the 2022 UCI Road World Championships.

BOTH SIDES OF BONNET, TASMANIA

Filmed on a crisp Tasmanian winter's morning, this is a popular training ride with the locals. Starting in Sandy Bay, we head south through Taroona, warming the legs before having a crack up Bonnet Hill. After a fast descent and a lap around Kingston Beach, we ramp it up again and climb back over Bonnet Hill from the other (steeper) side. It's a furious descent into Sandy Bay as thoughts turn to post-ride coffee, finishing the ride with a view across the harbour.

GARDEN OF THE GODS

Garden of the Gods is a scenic park area on the west side of Colorado Springs. Red sandstone rock formations are impressive along with the view of Pikes Peak. It’s a fun ride with lots of short climbs and twisty roads. I took a few different paths around the park to see all the roads. The park was featured in the US Pro Cycling Challenge in 2011 and 2014.

LLYN BRIANNE NORTH

A rollercoaster of a ride takes us deep into the heart of the remote Cambrian Mountains. A steady climb takes us up onto the high ground above the Llyn Brianne reservoir where we see more wild ponies and sheep than cars before ending the ride at the desolate Soar y Mynydd Chapel, 16 km from the nearest habitation. Watch out for the logging truck which clearly isn’t going to wait for any cyclists!

LAKE WARAMAUG

Ride around the shores of Lake Waramaug, a 656 acre lake in Litchfield County, Connecticut, a popular spot for cyclists of all levels. This 12Km loop passes through the towns of Kent, Warren, and Washington. There are several options to get the most out of this ride: Recovery Ride Laps of the lake are a great way to do a recovery ride. Intervals Ride the first half of the loop (West Shore Road) in 10 mins; ride three quarters of the lap in 15 mins, or ride the full lap in 20 mins. FTP Test A lap of the lake will bring you in at somewhere between 18 - 22 mins, depending on your power. The West Shore Road segment will take you to the half-way point, where you turn sharp right onto the North Shore Road segment. This will take you to the three quarters point of the lap. Turn right for the final 4 min sprint to the finish.
