Tackle the three gorges in the Northern part of Sydney: Bobbin Head, Berowra Waters & Galston. Starting from Hornsby train station you ride down into Bobbin Head gorge, climbing for just under 3km to the top. From there you ride along the Pacific Hwy towards Berowra Waters. At the bottom of the descent a ferry will take you to the other side. A 3.5km climb to the top is hard, but you can do it. After that it is one more time downhill before switchbacks will take you back to the top of Galston.

Note: This is all on-road and the gorges can get very busy with car traffic. Only for experienced riders!
