The Canberra Centenary Trail (CCT) is a nice ride with the exception that so much is through the suburbs. Without directional signage through the suburbs, Komoot will be required to find our way. Canberra.bike suggests that we may as well stay on dirt roads.
For rides, it is useful to have a base camp. For gravel riding a base camp is suitably remote, has good facilities, gravel roads at the door, a Rapid bus service to get you there, and hopefully a bike shop close by.
Denman Prospect is the first of our chosen base camps. Only the bike shop is missing. Three rides start here: Denman Prospect and Stromlo West, Denman Prospect Forest Loop and Denman Prospect and Pipe Flat.
