It was a glorious morning for a ride, beautiful sunshine, and not too warm.
We met at Victoria Park Bowral ,near the swimming pool, and headed via the bike paths, towards East Bowral.
The path follows a small creek which is home to many families of Wood Ducks. One male was very protective of his large brood and chased the bikes away!

After winding our way (getting only a little lost) through back roads and paths, John ended up making a friend!

From here we headed down, passing magnificent gardens, to the cycle path that runs between Bowral and Moss Vale. We rode almost to Moss Vale before returning to Bowral

On returning to Bowral, we enjoyed the gardens of Burradoo before heading back toward the centre of Bowral, the Bradman Museum coffee and cake (yum). A game of cricket was in progress and people were taking in the old-world charm.
Going back in time – A carriage ride and a Pedersen bike
Tulips were still looking fantastic in Corbett gardens in the centre of Bowral.
