The Sunday Train – a CBC Social Ride

Are you looking for a social gravel/road ride? This monthly ride has 65km with 1000m of climb on a combination of road and gravel. It’s fully guided, and free to join.

The rides happens on the first Sunday of every month, and follows a loop around Cessnock. There’s no designated start or finish point – you can join the train at any of the eight scheduled stops. Here’s the map of the route:

Earlybirds can start at the Millfield General Store. There’s plenty of parking and its a nice spot for coffee before the trip home.

The schedule is set for a moderately paced road ride. The gravel sections have a much slower pace to enjoy the surroundings.
