Kangaroo Valley is a quaint little town in the Southern Highlands. The only way in and out is via two amazing passes. Most people will head down after work on Friday but the hardy members ride down.
We vary the tour routes every year but here's an example of what to expect.
DAY 1 (Optional)
170km | 2117m | 6½-7 hrs
The ultimate way to start a tour is to cycle there! We take the usual Waterfall route but keep going via the beautiful Royal National Park. We go over the stunning Clifton Sea Bridge before we stop for breakfast in Wollongong. Fuel up because the challenging Macquarie Pass lies ahead. Averaging 5.3% over 12.3km it's equally beutiful as it is brutal.
107km | 1559m | 4½hrs
We start with a nice easy 5k warm up but then things get a bit vertical. The first climb is 7kms of about 9-11 % gradient. It’s a tough climb but it’s very rewarding and once you pop out on top the rest of the day is almost flat in comparison! We head towards Robertson for coffee before making our way to Ye Olde Bicycle Shoppe cafe in Bundanoon for a well-earned lunch. From there we make our way back home and back down that climb we rode up in the morning. It’s one of the best descents you’ll ever find – fast, twisty and smooth roads. Dinner is at a local restaurant after a few drinks at the local pub.
