Description

A not-so-shortcut to McLeans Island along the stopbanks. This is ideal to increase your lap distance, or for after hours access, or just for a bit of fun. You are riding along the top of the stopbanks and should encounter no traffic (I have never seen a soul on this stopbank ever!) but get to spy on the golfers and admire the skyline.

Getting there

From the city, head behind the airport down McLeans Island Road. You'll take a right, then a left, and see a small hump in the road (stopbank) with a dirt carpark to the right. Stop there and begin your trek. You can start from the McLeans Island track as well, just turn left on the last stopbank (about the 9km mark).
