Walk description:

A leisurely ride from Strathfield to Brighton-le-sands along the cycleway, for plane spotting and lunch by the sea before returning along the same path. No toilets at start, but plenty along the way. Map: street directory.

Report:

It was a perfect day for cycling - 17 and partly cloudy - and despite the 35 km/h headwinds we had an enjoyable, leisurely 42 km ride along the Cook’s River past wattles in flower and alongside market gardens. We stopped for lunch and a coffee on Brighton-le-sands beach, out of the wind in the cafe where we could watch the wind on the water and the planes taking off from the airport. With the wind at our backs for much of the way and the sun shining forth, we arrived at the end of the ride earlier than expected.
