Description


From Tuggerah Station, we head South then East on quiet back roads and shared paths to The Entrance where we cross The Entrance bridge and head North on the Bike Lane of the Central Coast Hwy. We then stop for coffee at Budgewoi and make our way onto the cycling path and then we join the quiet rural back roads through the sleepy suburbs of Wyongah, Tuggarawong, Rocky Point and Tacoma where we join the Wyong River which we follow into Wyong. The route then follows the Pacific Hwy South to Tuggerah Station.

Because this is a well known recreational area, there are numerous rest areas along the route equipped with cafes, toilets and water.

The route is along mostly quiet back roads with the exception of the Central Coast Hwy bike lane/break down lane where there is sometimes fast moving traffic.

Please be aware you have to be self sufficient as there are no viable bail out points. It is recommended to have two spare tubes, some snacks and sufficient water.

Notes: Start ASAP after arrival of 8-car V-set train from Central 7:15 (E 7:40, H 7:53). Mask on train. Show Leader you're max-vaxed.

Pre-registration is required through the Bike North website link
