‘Back of Burrill’ – Bike Ride

 

.

The day started with us wondering whether it would be too rainy to ride but after a few text messages and phone calls were exchanged, we gathered a group of 14 intrepid riders prepared to get wet.

Starting at Burrill Lions Park, we headed across the highway, turned into Wallaby Drive and then Wyoming Avenue to find the path to the heritage listed Aboriginal Cave. We stopped for a look at the cave, which was occupied for 20,000 years before European settlers arrived and from a time when the ocean shore was over 18 km further east than it is today. We then travelled along Burrill Lake Drive, with a notable and challenging detour suggested by Bobbie, finally exiting at Wheelbarrow Road. From here we headed across to the back of Lake Tabourie before returning to Burrill Lake, locking up 17 km overall. 

Beautiful scenery around Burrill Lake’s southern edge and Lake Tabourie.  Stand out performances by Issi who rode to the start from home, Simone for pure dare-devil Kamikaze riding and Kaitlin who managed the hardest part of the ride on a bike a bit too small until Mum (Cheryl) took pity and swapped for her bike on the way back. It was hard to keep up with Jacqui’s E Bike speed ascending the steeper hills but we gave it our best shot.

Riders included Bobbie & Lyn, Issi, Paul, John & Nikki, John & Jacqui, Cheryl & Caitlyn,  Robbie & Simone, John & Margy.
