Loop around the bay for a chilled night, riding up to Forest lodge to find a massive lounge area with a bike up on the ceiling.
We hoped to get to Norway during the winter solstice but got to Observatory hill and gave up and went for a beer instead (Hero of Waterloo).
Hills: Just a few hills up to Mrs Macquarie's chair and Observatory hill.
Distance: 12 km
Road: MOstly on road, in the park, mostly quiet some bits with traffic along Bourke and Huntley
Naomi from Team Beer mapped out the perfect Inner West Loop for this tour of Sydney's best breweries. A smooth 11km through Alexandria, Erskineville, Newtown, Camperdown & Glebe.

This was SXR's first Pub Ride and it won't be the last for sure.
Big thanks to Rob Berry, from BikeWise Sydney, for letting us chase him down through to Balmain.
He added his own flavour to the ride by squeezing in a pre ride drink, not sure if this will be a once off or a tradition... will have to wait and see on the next ride.
Distance: 22 kms
Hills: A few in Balmain
