Claude Rd and Tazmazia
A ride along Claude Rd, with iconic Mt Roland in the background. We go out to Gowrie Park and Cethana, and then back to Sheffield via Staverton and the Promised Land. 41km, 625m total ascent, all sealed.
We may stop for coffee at Cethana (Round Hill Coffee has been recommended!), to caffeine-load for the ride up to Staverton.
With most of the hard work behind us at the 27km mark, a stopover at Tasmazia’s pancake parlour will make for a nice lunch break before the mostly downhill run back to the big smoke (Sheffield!).
There is an easier alternative available on the day: Sheffield to Tasmazia and return (28km, 257m ascent).
Meeting Point: Sheffield, in the main public car park located behind the IGA Supermarket in the main street. (Map). The entrance is off High Street just before the Town Hall.
Time: Be ready to depart at 11am.

Bicycle Network Tasmania makes every effort to ensure our organised rides are safe, however participants are advised to ensure they have insurance against accidents. The best option is to become a member of Bicycle Network. This ensures you have excellent year-round 24/7 cover against both Personal Injury and Third Party Personal/Property damage whilst riding your bike.
Please note - if there are any riders under 16 years old, the adult with them will take primary responsibility for their safety on the ride.
