Last Sunday 12 cyclists participated in the Loop Lake Illawarra ride.
They had a lovely cycle in perfect weather, which was not too hot and no wind for most of the ride.
Along the route the cyclists enjoyed the added new parts of the cycleway at Oak Flats, and around the point from the Tallawarra Power Station.
The riders stopped for coffee and lunch at the “Cup of Love” at Mt Warrigal, a fitting name for the riders’ morning scenic activity.
