    Anyone experienced in travelling from Penrith to Richmond? My bike map shows me that the Northern Road has on-road facilities but the Castlereagh Road seem to follow the Nepean River and should be more interesting. I'm not interested in the fastest route. I'd prefer something more scenic and relatively safe. Should I stick with the Northern road?

    I've answered my own question. The Castlereagh Rd has no shoulders most of the way and the traffic, although fairly infrequent, travels at 100km/hr on a fairly narrow road. Not for regular travel! Hopefully the Northern Road is safer.
