Our options are getting limited. Butters Bridge and Black Mountain Peninsula are closed. Cycling must go on. Try a Arboretum and Black Mountain gravel ride instead of the LBG CBR Cycle Route.
The Canberrra Centenary Trail is often forgotten. It leads from the Molonglo Valley to Civic through very pretty forest. We have outlined the route on Komoot. The route is not safe when the Molonglo River is flooded.
The route is 17.5km long and only 4.3km is paved. The total climb is small, only 210m. The steep sections are short. The route can be downloaded from Komoot.
