THE TRACK

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 will have to have some experience with traffic, as cars and motor bikes travel along Cotter Road.  Verges are wide in most places.
