Last Sunday nine riders attended the Lake Illawarra ride on a cool but rain free morning. The group started from Boonerah Point Reserve, Mount Warrigal, on the south eastern side of the lake and rode a 40km circuit around Lake Illawarra before returning to the ‘Cup of Love’ café for well earned refreshments.
On last Thursdays Midweek Mountain Bike ride 13 riders cycled from the Currarong Shops to Point Perpendicular, on a beautiful warm sunny morning. The riders stopped to admire panoramic views to the south, west and east from various observation areas along the route. On the return journey, the group rode down to Long Beach and along the beach and road, to Cabbage Tree Beach where many enjoyed a cool dip in Jervis Bay. After the ride a leisurely coffee break was had at ‘Zac’s Place’ Currarong, while taking in the views.
