It was one of those beautifully crisp and gloriously sunny winter's days when we decided to brush the dust off our bikes and make for scenic Windsor and take in some cycling.

After taking in the Windsor Mall Craft Markets head down to the end of Kable Street off the mall and you'll come to a lovely little lookout sitting over the Hawkesbury River. Take a little time to enjoy the sun and the views from this platform before starting out.

Jump on your bike or make your way on foot and head left along the river path and take in the beautiful views along the river. You'll know you've come to the end of the track when you hit a sports oval, and if you fancy a rest the path is dotted with park benches for your comfort.

Because it is a relatively short track with smoothly paved paths and only slight hills this is a great track to take the kids on, especially the little ones that are just starting out and getting into the cycling groove. It is also great for a leisurely stroll on a lazy Sunday afternoon when you want to soak up some of the suns last rays.

Once you've had enough of the cycling or strolling stop at one of the tables under the Wisteria by the river and have yourself a little picnic. A lovely place for an outing and a great place to take the kids Windsor has a lot to offer and you're sure to find something to please in this scenic suburb.
