Turramurra to Lindfield and beyond with twist

What a ride! Two National Parks, University, a bush track crossing the Lane Cove River complete with a train trip in the middle.
This is the tour de force of north Sydney cycling, its what its all about and in only 37km of cycling. You can’t do better than that!

We start with an exhilarating descent from the Turramurra rail station on Kissing Point Road down to Browns Waterhole, under the M2, then through a scenic, secluded and very pretty Waterloo Park, pass the Macquarie University campus and its brand new hospital. From there we cunningly ride under De Burgs Bridge and then onto the full length of Riverside Drive through the Lane Cove National Park. Over the picturesque weir and shortly a steep climb to the Lindfield shops for a well-earned coffee break; keeping company with the best of the North Shore elite.

We now take a an 11km train ride to Asquith just north of Hornsby for a ride through the Kur-ring-gai Chase National Park and down to scenic, tranquil Bobbin Head, climbing out to North Turramurra shops where we have our lunch break. From there an easy cycle back to the start at Turramurra rail station.

There is 37km of cycling with two challenging hills, one up to Lindfield from the Lane Cove National Park and the other from Bobbin Head to North Turramurra. And an 11km train ride in between to recover. A perfect combination. Sydney at its best. Thanks go to Jim M for devising this ride.
