where is the best spot to park at tha carpark near the shop ? or down near the end of McRoberts rd.

not sure - Naz knows this one - but I reckon carpark near shops sounds best for fuel after ride.

The best spot for meeting is at the main reserve carpark Illawong drive as shown on map, there's a cafe (open early morning), toilets and plenty of free parking spaces, usually doesn't get full till mid morning. Hey, you guys are gonna like it there, i hope so anyway.

thanks Naz I'm sure we are gunna like this ,I used to ride my pushie down here in about 1973 we would go to a rope swing around the back of the lake and spend hours swimming, not sure I would swim here now!(even then it was pretty polluted)

Are you bringing the young fella Naz?

naah! don't think so this time steve, haven't asked him yet though but already know the answer cause he's sleeping over (or not sleep at all knowing him) at his friend's on friday night, doubt it he'll be keen on 30k ride next morning and at lake parramatta.

looking forward to a cup of flat white and a toasted banana bread with the lot after ride.

Coffee and banana bread - now your talking. My wife is not going to believe I have actually been out riding with all this eating - especially after all those prawns on Sunday night I'm going to be 10kg heavier when she gets back!

Thought I would tag along on this one guys - and catch up with some of the Kiwarrak crew.

Haven't been here before so will be good to see some different trails.

See you tomorrow.

HI Guys,My name is Nada and I haven't come along on any of the rides but have been really keen to get into mountainbiking in Sydney.(used to do quite a bit of it interstate a couple of years back). Was thinking of joining your Lake Parramatta Ride if thats cool?

cambo's picture

Hi guys, not sure if I can stay for the full 3 hours and join you for coffee and banana bread (even though that's the best part) as her indoors needs to work in the afternoon. Will it be OK to jump out early if required?

CROMERBOY's picture

No drama at all
