Paloona Circuits

Postponed from last weekend due to the weather: A very scenic ride, with several loop options, in the pleasant farmlands of the Forth River valley.  All on sealed roads, suited to any bike type. A few hills, but there are easier options which hug the river available to choose on the day.                                                              

The full ride is a 32 km loop including a total of 600m ascent, via Wilmot, Paloona, Bellamy, Forthside, Forth, Braddons Lookout & Leith Roads.


a) Turn around at Paloona bridge, or continue to the bottom of Geales Rd before turning, then return the same way;

b) extend a) by continuing beyond Forth along the river towards Leith, perhaps meeting up with the full route riders, then turning and returning to Forth;

c) Those not feeling like completing the full loop can shortcut down into Forth at the end of Forthside Road.
