Description


RIDE CANCELLED

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 to Toukley where we rejoin the waterfront track to the Gorokan Bridge then 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 Station where the ride can finish for those that so desire.

The route then follows the Pacific Hwy South for 1 km before joining a dedicated bike track for another 1.5 km back to Tuggerah Station and the train back to Hornsby.

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 where there is sometimes fast moving traffic. We have the option here of using a shared path adjacent to the Highway for much of its length until Toukley where we rejoin rural back roads again.

There are minimal climbs along this route with a total height gain of 200

Notes: 7:23AM train from Hornsby is scheduled to arrive Tuggerah at 8:31AM. Please check Bike North website Thursday evening 8:00PM as ride will be cancelled if weather forecast is adverse.
