A moderate paced ride from Kariong to Pie in the Sky cafe Cowan and back, through the picturesque Brisbane Water National Park and over the Hawkesbury River.

Designed for more experienced riders, we utilise the old Pacific Hwy and include 4 longish climbs (Mooney-Calga, PiTS, Mt.White and Mooney-Somersby) - nothing too steep, but you’ll certainly know you’ve been up a few hills by the time you get home!

BYO water, snack and money for coffee/drink at Pie in the Sky (or other cafe).

Opt-out at Brooklyn for a train to Woy Woy or Gosford if required, but you still need to get back to Kariong if your car is there. Otherwise it's "call a friend for pickup".

Coffee at Pie in the Sky at the half way point (normally), or the Estuary or The Old Road cafe Mount White on the way back.

NOTE: this ride may be cancelled due to weather or ride leader issues - please monitor this event for updates!


Cycling can be an enjoyable and exciting activity. However, like many recreational activities that require physical exertion, cycling carries with it the risk of physical injury. The risks associated with cycling include the risk that:

  • you may be involved in a collision with people, animals, objects and/or vehicles;
  • you may lose your balance;
  • you may suffer from the effects of heat, cold, wind, rain and other weather conditions;
  • you may suffer from physical exertion;
  • you may become separated from the cycling group; and
  • you may fall from your bicycle.

These risks may result in death, bodily injury, disability, property damage and economic loss. There are other risks to which you may be exposed. You should ensure that you wear appropriate clothing and safety equipment, including a helmet.

By participating in the cycling activities provided by the organising Bicycle NSW Affiliated Bicycle User Group, you agree:

  • to obey all Australian and NSW road rules;
  • that your bicycle and equipment is in good mechanical order.

  • to take full and sole responsibility for any person under the age of 18 years who accompanies you in these cycling activities;

An approved Australian Standards helmet is required to be worn on all rides. No helmet, no ride. No exceptions. Please ensure your bike is in good working order and bring a spare tube, a pump, tyre levers, a full water bottle and any other tools you may require. It is also recommended you bring money for food and/or fares and your mobile phone.

Children – these rides are not a child minding service. Every rider under the age of 18 must be under the direct supervision of a parent/guardian. The parent/guardian must watch and control their children for the duration of the ride. The parent/guardian agrees to take full and sole responsibility for their children’s safety. Please contact the Ride Leader in advance to discuss the suitability of a ride for your children.
