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.
