Sunday Ride – Tumut, NSW (Club Event)

  • 26 Nov 2023
  • 08:30 - 17:00
  • Tumut River Brewing Co, Tumut, (TS2 and GS2)


UPDATE 25 November: Ride CANCELLED due to forecast poor weather inc. storms. To be rescheduled, likely late December or January.

24 November Update - Due to the forecast for possible severe storms in the ride area this weekend, a decision will be made midday 25 November as to whether the ride remains on, or is postponed to December/January.

Why not break out the summer riding gear and join the Club for a day ride and lunch at the Tumut River Brewing Co.? TS-smooth, TS-back roads and GS options all in the mix. If you’d prefer a shorter ride, then why not join the first leg of the ride through to Harden-Murrumburrah for coffee (270 km return)?


All options - via the Barton and Hume Hwys, Lachlan Valley Way, Cunningar Rd and Burley Griffin Way to Harden-Murrrumburrah (with coffee/rest stop at Barnes Store Emporium Cafe), then:

  • TS-back roads - Jugiong Rd to Hume Hwy (short stretch only), Coolac Rest Area (regroup), then Gobarralong, Darbalara and Brungle Rds for a scenic, winding ride through to Tumut (250km):  Google Maps  
  • TS-smooth – BG Way to Wallendbeen, Olympic Hwy to Cootamundra, Muttama Rd to Coolac, Hume Hwy to Gundagai and Gocup Rd to Tumut (260km): Google Maps 
  • GS – Jugiong Rd to Bundarbo Bridge, Hopewood Rd (~20 km unsealed), picking up Gobarralong, Darbalara and Brungle Rds (all sealed) to Tarrabandra Rd (~25km unsealed following the Tumut and Murrumbidgee Rivers), then back onto Brungle Rd to Tumut (286 km, with this option possibly taking ~4 hours of riding to the ~3 hours for TS routes): Google Maps 


  • TS-smooth - via Gocup Rd, Hume and Barton Hwys (180km): Google Maps 
  • TS-back roads - via Gocup Rd, Hume Hwy, then Berremangra and Bouyeo Rds to BGW and then Hume and Barton Hwys (210 km): Google Maps 
  • GS – options include Brindabella Rd, Wee Jasper etc.

Approximately 440-460km return for TS riders (depending on route) on sealed main, secondary or back roads. Expect some road surfaces to be damaged. Break/stop if needed on the return leg to be decided on the day.

Fuel: Available in Murrumburrah and Tumut.

Meeting Point: Meet fuelled and ready to go at Ampol/Caltex Foodary (Curran  Drive, Gold Creek (Nicholls)) for a prompt 08:30 departure.

Register if you're interested in coming so I can let the brewery know likely numbers for lunch. Please email if you plan to meet the group on the way, or at the brewery, or head elsewhere after coffee in Harden-Murrumburrah.

For those joining the ride along the way, or making their own way to the brewery, proposed meeting points (with best guess times) are:

·         Ampol/Caltex Foodary, Gold Creek (Nicholls) - leaving 08:30;

·         Barnes Store Emporium Cafe (Harden-Murrumburrah) - arriving 10:00 and leaving 10:40;
