  •   Sydney has a few popular lake rides that you can easily ride around. They are Iron Cove, Narrabeen Lagoon and Penrith on the Nepean River.  But the Georges River throws up a far bigger challenge out near Liverpool and its called Chipping Norton Lake.  Technically its just a large bulge in the river but as a bike rider,…
