COURSE:

Scenic City Starter offers riders the chance to enjoy Canberra’s scenic trails in the relaxed context of an Intermediate and Introductory ride weekend.

 

The rides will cross Cotter Road and travel into the Narrabundah Hill Reserve and down the Coolemon trail to Kambah, returning a similar way.  There are some undulations in the 40km ride, but no big hills.  The trails may be hard underfoot but for most of the course, for all rides, will offer grassy verges. 

Horses may see bike riders, walkers and runners. The ground is fairly hard underfoot, boots are recoomended for barefoot horses. If you are new to endurance please see the "new to endurance" section of the nsw era website and download the new riders booklet to ensure you are well prepared. 

 

COST: 

40k - $65 + Day membership if you are not a member of NSW or another affiliated ERA

20k - $45 + Day membership if you are not a member of NSW or another affiliated ERA

10k - $35 + Day membership if you are not a member of NSW or another affiliated ERA

 
VENUE: Cotter Rd, Weston Creek ACT 2611 - enter via Mount Stromlo Road. 
Enter "Mount Stromlo Observatory" into your GPS. Once on Cotter Road, take the turn to Mount Stromlo (Mount Stromlo Road). After roughly 1km on Mount Stromlo Road you will see a yellow horses crossing sign. Turn left onto the dirt road just behind the sign. The road base is about another 1 km down the dirt road. There will be signs from Cotter Road to the ride base.
