I read somewhere (SMH on Saturday I think) of the above ? Does it exist ?
Looking to get some longish uninterupted mileage in which seems impossible
in Sydney

Down through Bobbin Head and up the other side, then turn around and come
back.

They are excellent rides. If you are a bit of a glutton you can go Mangrove
mtn to Berowra then through Berowra waters up to dural and reverse. Also
the bobbin head run is ok for a shortie with a great fun winding hill.

The SMH article was about the West Head ride. If you ride from the entry
gate on West Head Road its approx 25km return but there's lots of
options to ride from further back.

Surely you were thinking of "Cinque Montagnes". Fairly simple one: Start
in Turramurra, ride down Bobbin Head Road through Bobbin Head and up the
other side to the highway, then South to Hornsby, West down to Galston Gorge
and up the other side, then North to Berowra Waters. Catch a quick breather
while you wait for the ferry, then up the hill to Berowra, North at the
Highway past the pie shop, a quick u-turn at Brooklyn Road for the climb
back to the pie shop. Then South along the highway, and back down through
Bobbin Head to the start.

Around 100km, with five good climbs, and almost all on quiet rural roads.
The true masochist can retrace their path from Brooklyn Road, back through
Berowra Waters and Galston Gorge, for a total of around 130km and seven good
climbs. Me, I'm working up to the five climb variety.

Regards,

Suzy
