The Spit/Mosman/Middle Head area makes for a spectacular and hilly ride, but for electric assisted bikes thats not a problem. A mid-morning mid-week ride will see very little traffic, except for Balmoral beach. This particular ride started at the Spit, then dropped by Chinaman’s Beach before climbing up to Mosman then descending to Balmoral.

From Balmoral, its a few steep hills to Georges Heights and Middle Head, with views out to Manly and Watsons Bay. There is a rugged track going down to the secluded Coblers Beach and a challenging ascent back up to the headland to the heritage military installations. Some stunning views over Sydney Harbour and short visit to Gunners Barracks before heading back via The Spit Reserve.
