After an awesome but somewhat brutal inaugural Grove Grind 100, our Autumn edition was set to be a little different. On May 18th, over 80 riders joined us for a more subdued gravel loop around the Colo River, located about 1.5 hours’ drive north-west of Sydney’s CBD.
For Grove Grind Colo we’ve put together two route options to suit riders of varying ability. Both routes start together with a flat 5km of tarmac before we hit the glorious gravel. 13km in the 64km Chillers Loop tackle their big climb of the day while the 82km Hitters Loop ventures up Comleroy Rd for a scenic 18km out & back with an extra 500m of climbing. The Hitters pace will be fast because their mission is to catch the Chillers before they finish!
Route details can be found on Strava:
This is not a sanctioned event, just a group of like-minded individuals going for a ride together. The ride is unsupported, so you'll need to be self-sufficient and well prepared. Key things you should consider are:
Public transport changes: Please check schedule because train now leaves earlier, stops at Granville, and then connecting bus to Windsor.
Train logistics: Depart 6am Redfern > change trains Parramatta or Westmead (need to check on day these trains arrive/depart on same platform to avoid mad dash to another platform) > arrive 7.21am Windsor > 25km cycle to Colo Riverside Cafe.
Windsor Station toilets will be closed and closest 500m next to Memorial Park tennis courts on George St (water not drinkable from handbasin). Drinking water fountains at Howe Park and Windsor Mall (pedestrian only part of George St).
Yiew! Can’t wait!
