Hi,

Im also new to the area and would like to know some more rides to do. I tend to ride up the mountains to Katoomba which is a nice ride and another favourite is along Castlereagh Rd to the Richmond turn off then up Hawkesbury Rd / Springwood Rd to Springwood and down the mountains. This ride is a bit over 60km and up to Katoomba from Penrith is about 50km one way. Fast easy trip back down. Any other ideas??

It starts near Woodford Station and goes down to Glenbrook. All on 4WD track so only for the mountain bike. You could always ride up if you wanted to work hard and have a mountain bike!!
