Parramatta to Rhodes cycleway

So with Dana's new bike arriving during the week, she was excited to get out for a test ride. With a fantastic network of cycleways around Sydney, we chose to start from Parramatta and head along the river via Sydney Olympic Park and on to Rhodes return.

Dana's new bike is an Gazelle Orange X2 which has been on her wish list for quite some time and the guys from the Omafiets bike shop were a great help when buying the bike. They are dedicated riders themselves and are stoked on cycle touring which fits well with what we plan to do.

I was keen to see just how well the bike performed for Dana and after an effortless cruise to Homebush, I really couldn't believe the difference an electric bike made for her. We had coffee and relaxed then rode through the wetlands and on to Rhodes before exploring the shipwrecks around the bay.

The return journey was just as effortless and we cant wait to explore further afield.
