CBR Cycle Route C7: two loops network

A loop between the town centres of Belconnen, Gungahlin and Mitchell.

From Belconnen there are two ways to Gungahlin: the CBR C7 and the C1. Both are not new. They have existed as long as Gungahlin itself and form a loop through Kaleen. The strength of loops for navigation is that you can leave and join them wherever and whenever you like. This provides the cyclist with many options.

Combine the CBR Cycle Routes C7, C1 and C11 together and we have now two loops that form a network. Networks allow the CBR Cycle Routes to be used in many ways. This allows the consideration of a cycling network between town centres.

Processing…
Success! You’re on the list.

The Gungahlin loop starts and ends in Kaleen. The route is flat and not very long (15.6km, 100m climb, and a maximum gradient of 6%). The image below shows the route in Komoot. The GPX file for cycling navigation can be downloaded.
