    The Gong ride goes from Sydney Park at St. Peters, an inner suburb, all the way to the southern city of Wollongong. Total distance is around 90 kms and each year 10,000 people join in for the event. I say that number confidently because the number is limited.

    Queenstown Sports & Outdoors

    For the last section through the tunnel, we overshoot the entrance, and have to rock climb back to a suitable spot. We almost end up going over a very evil rapid called The Mother-in-law.
