Description:

The second in our Orange/3Peaks training rides series is the BumblER.

This is a 180km ride with 2500m of climbing, including the ascent of Bumble Hill. According to Strava this climb is 3.7km at an average grade of 8%.

The ride starts at 6:00 from the top of Kissing Point Rd heading out through Brooklyn and Mt White. After the usual debate about Dog Trap Rd, etc, we'll end up in Wyong one way or another. A coffee/brunch/refluel stop here at about 9:30 so have a decent brekkie before leaving. 45 mins of flatish riding from there to the base of the climb. At the top, we will regroup and have a breather.

Then it's back home though Peats Ridge. Potential stops on the way back are Corrugated Cafe, Pie in the Sky or the new fave, Eat in Cowan.

Ride time is 7 hours odd, with clock time of about 9:30 so back around 3:30pm
