WELCOME TO THE ORANGE REGION Cycling in the Orange Region has something for everyone. From the racing cyclist to mountain bikers to leisure riders, from family friendly rides to those wanting to experience the many natural features of the area. Either relax or challenge yourself. For those who really want to challenge themselves, try the enormity of the Mountain or the Pinnacle (page 25). Maybe a long tour through the many villages is for you? Every season provides a different backdrop for your ride. Brilliant greens and yellows of Spring and Summer give way to a kaleidoscope of colours in Autumn. Winter brings a fresh invigoration and a new look to the same landscape. Leisure riders and family groups are well catered for in and around the city (page 5). From city streets to cycle loops in beautiful reserves, Orange has it all for you. This guide provides you with a range of maps to explore the region, but don’t be limited to just following the maps; get out and explore! Getting here is pretty easy. Orange is a three hour drive from Penrith, Richmond or Canberra. If you prefer public transport, the XPT leaves Sydney Central every day for Orange, picking up at Strathfield, Parramatta, Blacktown, Penrith and Katoomba. Jump on the train with your bike booked in as luggage for a scenic trip to start you on your journey. For more information on visiting Orange go to www.visitorange.com.au This Cycling Guide includes a number of suggested rides which encompass many features of the region, including in and out of town rides, locations of wineries and farm gates, cycle shops and hire locations and other useful information for planning your ride. If you have a smart phone, scan the QR code for your ride and use Strava to help you on your way. Join in the conversation and make a comment on the site. Check out how you fare against other riders and you may even get King of the Mountain. Enjoy your cycling experience in the Orange Region!

SAFETY We encourage all users of this guide to ride in a safe and responsible manner and provide the following tips for your assistance. Users of this guide ride knowing they are responsible for all their own actions and no warranty or liability is implied for the authors. BICYCLE SAFETY TIPS

Bicycle riders must obey road rules, traffic signs and signals. Riders over 12 years of age not accompanying a minor are not permitted to ride on the footpath. At night, a white headlight and red taillight should be used by all cyclists.

MULTI-LANE ROUNDABOUTS

You should assess your own skill level before attempting to travel through a multi-lane roundabout. If you don’t feel comfortable negotiating a multi-lane roundabout, take a different route.

Cyclists must wear helmets at all times.

There are two ways a cyclist may make a right turn using a multi-lane roundabout.

Stay alert, check for hazards and avoid riding in car blind spots.

--

 se the outer left lane, giving way at each exit U to all traffic exiting the roundabout

You may ride two abreast but not more than 1.5 m apart.

--

 se the inner right lane and complete the turn U in the same way a car would do.

Your bicycle must be fitted with a bell, horn or other warning device; please use it to gently warn pedestrians on shared paths. When riding on a shared path, keep to the left at all times unless it is impractical to do so, and give way to pedestrians.

LARGE VEHICLES

Avoid riding beside heavy vehicles. Slow or stop to allow them to pass, then safely continue your journey. RAILWAY CROSSINGS

Use hand signals at all times to indicate to other road users what you are doing and where you are going.

Check both ways twice and listen for oncoming trains before you cross a railway track.

INTERSECTIONS

To ride safely over tracks, approach at a right angle to avoid your wheels getting trapped.

Before you negotiate an intersection, try to make eye contact with drivers who are giving way. If you do not see their eyes look at you, it is unlikely they have seen you. TURNING RIGHT

To ensure a safe right turn, look at the traffic around you then indicate and turn when the traffic is clear. Make sure you look over your shoulder to identify potential hazards beside or behind you before making the turn.

CYCLE ORANGE

If the crossing is too difficult to ride over, dismount and walk your bicycle. CBD AREA

RO AD

There are four nominated in-town bicycle trails. Follow the signposts for a recreational ride to savour all that Orange has to offer. The trails take in parkland, wetland and suburbs, with large sections of shared cycle routes and some on-road riding. It is recommended to ride each loop in an anti-clockwise direction so your turns in town are to the left. The routes are shown on the town map at the centre of this publication. Pick up brochures at the Orange Visitor Information Centre for heritage, Autumn colour and other Town Trails.

NORTH ORANGE LOOP 8KM This loop explores some of the developing areas of town, with extensive shared pathways, some riding through residential streets and the opportunity to visit the beautiful Botanic Gardens and the Adventure Playground. A visit to the Botanic Gardens, with its diverse range of exotic and native plants, historic apple orchard, heritage church, Bert Flugelman sculpture and wonderful birdlife should not be missed. The start point is the Botanic Gardens carpark but you can start anywhere along the loop. Head south along Hill Street till you get to the parkland opposite Roselawn Drive. There’s a shared pathway along the creek-line here that will take you to Kearneys Drive. Continue south along Kearneys Drive till you get to Margaret Street and take a quick right then left onto Sampson Street. This part of town is stunning during Autumn and you could take a detour through these wide streets with large trees to take in their colour. There’s a shop opposite Perry Oval on Clinton Street if you need a drink. Continue east along Dalton Street and head past the old hospital and many historic residences, all the way over the railway line to the start of the shared pathway heading north. This will take you past the Show Ground and near the Northern Distributor Road to the North Orange shops. Ride on the shoulder of the distributor road for a short distance when the path ends and then turn left back towards the Botanic Gardens. Historic Emmaville Cottage, originally located on the Narrambla estate, is now located near the main entrance to the Gardens.

WETLAND LOOP 7KM This loop takes you through extended wetland reserves to the north west of the centre of Orange. The recommended start for this loop is near the Greengate shops at the corner of Prince Street and Woodward Street/Mitchell Highway. Most riding is on off-road shared pathway but there are areas of on-road riding and road crossing. Go through the small park to Burrendong Way and ride north till you get to Somerset Park and then take the shared pathway through the park past the constructed wetlands around to Coogal Park and its creek-line habitat and wetlands. There are playgrounds within the parklands and great spots for picnics. Cross The Escort Way and ride along Ploughmans Lane, taking in the grandeur of the poplar lined avenue. Once you reach Coronation Drive you can turn left up the hill and down towards town or you could take a detour and cross over to explore Ploughmans Wetland. If you’re a bird watcher, Lathams Snipe are known to visit this wetland on a regular basis. At the corner of Coronation Drive and Woodward Street/ Mitchell Highway turn left and continue back to the shops and a well-earned rest.

BRABHAM LOOP 6KM This loop starts at Sir Jack Brabham Park and takes you around the historic Gnoo Blas racing circuit and into nature reserves and parks. You will pass the Orange Health Service, including historic Bloomfield Hospital. Take a detour through the historic grounds where there are many of the original trees that were brought from Kew Gardens in London for trialling at the hospital when it was built. Bloomfield Park and Hinton Reserve are home to an endangered ecological community including majestic eucalypts and a host of wildlife. The circuit can be completed entirely off-road although there is a need to cross two roads. Detour into Hinton Reserve if you have a mountain bike or ride through Gosling Creek Reserve down to the shared trail that heads back up to Black Sallee Loop. On your way along Huntley Road you can ride into Sir Jack Brabham Park along the boundary with the golf course and arrive at the historic ground marking for the aerodrome that was the first municipal use for the site: a 30m wide circle with the word ORANGE within it, visible from 10,000 metres in the sky.

OTHER ATTRACTIONS & TRAILS IN TOWN In addition to these Town Trails there are many attractions well worth finding on your bike.

CYCLE ORANGE

ORANGE HERITAGE TRAILS: Orange is home to an extensive range of historic buildings, monuments and parks reflecting the history and growth of Orange and the Central West . PARKS AND GARDENS: Discover Cook Park, Robertson Park and the Orange Botanic Gardens, where you will also find the children’s Adventure Playground and historic Emmaville Cottage. No cycling is permitted in the Botanic Gardens, however bike stabling is provided at the entrance to the Gardens or you can walk your bike with you.


MOULDER PARK LOOP 4.4KM This loop takes you through some of Orange’s most loved park-land and along beautiful residential streets. There is some road riding/crossing and the shared paths through the parks are gravel. Start at Elephant Park if you need to park your car and travel in an anti-clockwise direction so you can make easy left-hand turns. The loop winds around the stormwater detention basins and native revegetation of Pilcher Park and then off into Moulder Park along the creek-line through the historic exotic plantings and manicured spaces. Hop off and use the exercise equipment to make your ride more intense! Head past the pool and grab a coffee if the kiosk is open then continue through the park on to Anson Street. The skate park is to the right so check it out if you’re keen. Continue north along Anson Street up to Kite Street, turn left and keep going past the historic houses. Cook Park is well worth a walk around if you want to drop in, and don’t forget to buy some biscuits from the Guildry in the Bastick Cottage on the northern side of the park. Complete the loop by turning left into Woodward Street and making your way back to Elephant Park.

Five acres (2.2 hectares) was reserved for water purposes in the centre of Orange and was gazetted for public recreation on 13 May 1887 and named Robertson Park after Sir John Robertson who served in State Parliament from 1856–1886 and later became Premier and Governor. The park lies over Blackman’s Swamp Creek, the first water supply for Orange. It is said that teamsters frequently camped in the area.

RIDE LENGTH

This ride takes you through an area steeped in history as well as beautiful rural scenery.

50km

ATTRACTIONS/HIGHLIGHTS

Australian poet and author A B ‘Banjo’ Paterson was born on the Narrambla Estate on the outskirts of Orange. The historic Emmaville Cottage, now at the Orange Botanic Gardens, was originally sited on the Narrambla Estate.

Option 1 50km | Option 2 82km SURFACE

Bitumen Option 2 - Gravel ELEVATION PROFILE ELEVATION (M)

Be prepared for some spectacular downhill sections with some challenging hills on your return.

30km

The Banjo Paterson Memorial Park on Ophir Rd, site of the Templars Mill is worth a visit. JA Templar was Banjo Patersons uncle and operated a mill on this site.

STRAVA LINK

OPTIONAL ROUTES:

https://www.strava.com/rides/56101839

40km

Option 1 - On the return journey when reaching the Ophir Rd - Northern Distributor roundabout, continue along Ophir Rd then right into Dalton St instead of travelling along the Northern Distributor to return to the start point. Mt Lindsay Rotary Park is located on the left hand side of Dalton St at the top of the hill. This Park provides a wonderful view over Orange. Continue west along Dalton St to link up with the Leeds Parade shared path to return to the start point. This won’t add any distance to your journey, just one big hill! Option 2 - For those wishing for a longer ride, turn left when you reach the end of Cullya Rd and continue north along Ophir Rd, to reach Ophir Reserve, site of Australia’s first payable gold discovery. Retrace your route then continue on to Clifton Grove and Lewis Ponds. This will add 32km to the ride. Be prepared for significant hills, undulating road and long sections of gravel. CYCLE ORANGE

DESCRIPTION

This area, to the south of town, offers a mixture of flat off–road bitumen and gravel shared cycling/ walking paths. It passes the historic Bloomfield Hospital, which showcases the Autumn and Spring colours of Orange. Bloomfield Park, Gosling, Black Sallee and Hinton Reserves offer good opportunities to observe native flora and fauna. Sir Jack Brabham Park contains aviation and motor racing history, while The Springs is an Aboriginal historic site.

Gosling Creek, a former water supply to Orange, is a great place to view native flora and fauna, with bird hides, playground, bbq’s and interpretive signs.

DAIRY CREEK ROAD

ATTRACTIONS/HIGHLIGHTS SUMMER Sir Jack Brabham Park, now homeHILL to sporting fields, WELLW OOD RO AD

was once the site of the Orange Aerodrome. The perimeter of the aerodrome, which was in use until the 1950’s formed part of the Gnoo Blas motor racing circuit. The circuit also travelled along Bloomfield Rd, known as Pit Straight. Formula One speeds are rumoured to be achieved by local cyclists on their early morning rides.

SPRING HILL LA NE

HUNTLE

Y ROAD

Hinton Reserve is accessed through a marked gate adjacent to the Forest Rd bicycle path, close to the two old water towers. This Reserve features native flora and fauna of an endangered ecological community and has undergone extensive rehabilitation and regeneration. An alternative entrance is located opposite the carpark at the intersection of Bloomfield and Bargwanna Rds. Bloomfield Park comprises 21 hectares of native and exotic fauna and has shared bicycle/ pedestrian paths providing a link to Huntley Rd. A bike path runs parallel to Huntley Rd to link up with the Eastern side of Sir Jack Brabham Park.

The Springs Trail commences on the western side of Cadia Rd and Ballykeane Lane junction. This is one of the hidden gems of Orange, travelling through farmland and orchards, taking you from Black Sallee Reserve to exit at Shiralee Rd or Pinnacle Rd. SURFACE
