The other day I spoke about only having two gaps to complete the circumnavigation of the suburbs in the ACT. Today, I closed off one of those gaps.
I drew a route on Trackprofiler and uploaded it to my GPS, so I could ensure that I did not get lost. I made a couple little alterations whilst riding, but generally the route I made, was the route I followed.
Up until Latham, the majority of the ride was road (Blech!) and the same with the route back from Higgins. But the bit in between was something special! When I left the road for bike paths and trails at Latham, I was amazed to find out how nice it is along the Ginninderra Creek. I would have to say one of the better cycling experiences in the ACT. I followed the creek to the Bicentennial National Trail (BNT), where it was dirt horse trails and beautiful vistas. Seriously if you get a chance to explore this bit of the BNT, then I think that you will be impressed. It is where the suburbs meet the country and the views are for miles.
I enjoyed this trail that much that I think I will do it again (albeit truncated and slightly modified), as my fair well ride!
