Ride Profile

Elevation Profile

Rolling roads… A route without challenging hills but with a few bumps along the way, this is perfect for a steady endurance ride. The landscape is picturesque grazing country. A good route when the wind is from the East / South East to take advantage of tailwinds home.

Stop in Blayney (around 1.5hrs) or the beautiful historic Millthorpe (2.5hrs) for coffee before heading back to Orange.

Note: There is a 5 min section of highway from Blayney before the turnoff to Guyong which is best ridden single file and on the small shoulder.

Food & Water

Blayney: A number of cafés, supermarkets and pubs.

Millthorpe: Numerous cafés. Millthorpe Providore is a regular for locals.

Cellar Doors en Route

Millthorpe: Angullong, Slow Wine Co and Tamburlaine all have cellar doors in Millthorpe.

Watch out for

Road Condition: Quite good, but as per all our roads, rough and patched in sections. Always watch for potholes, especially after rain.
