LIV AUTUMN HARVEST RIDE
Celebrating Womens Cycling
The Liv Autumn Harvest Ride on Saturday 29 April saw hundreds of women gather around Australia to ride together in good company.
We were proud to help host this special women’s cycling event, with over 60 women exchanging busy urban streets for back country roads in the stunning Hawkesbury region.
Windsor welcomed us with morning mist over the fields, soon burning off in the heat of the day. Our route out of town took us through historic cobbled sections, before we crossed the river and emerged into the countryside. The harvest was in full swing, farmers busy bringing in pumpkin and cabbage crops from roadside fields.
After a steady start settling into the ride, the ferry crossing was a welcome chance to strip down layers and rest before the climb ahead. We regrouped at the top before spinning along quiet roads.
Silvery eucalypts mixed with flaming autumn leaves under a blue, blue sky. A picture perfect day. Meanwhile consistent undulations started to take their toll, making The Vintage Pantry in Pitt Town a very welcome sight.
Our very own ‘Liv Autumn Harvest Ride’ chalkboard was there to greet us, followed by heaped platters of seasonal produce, and the all-essential coffee! The final kilometres back into town marked the end of a shared journey, made in good company.
Huge thanks to our Giant Sydney Liv ambassadors and other volunteer ride leaders for leading the ride, and to Giant Cycling Club Sydney for supplying the support vehicle. These stunning photos from the day are by talented Sydney cycling photographer Ben Cirulis.
And of course thank you to all of the riders who came along to celebrate the joy of cycling with us! #LivInGoodCompany #AutumnHarvestRide #LivBeyond #GiantSydney
