Popular Cycling Routes: Coffs Harbour City Council’s booklet covering Coffs Harbour, Bellingen and Nambucca areas. Click here for PDF. Also available free at Council Office and local bike shops.
Coffs Coast Bike Rides is a guide to 25 rides spread over the Coffs Harbour, Bellingen and Nambucca shire areas with starting points along the coastline from Woolgoolga to Scotts Head and as far west as Dorrigo.
The guide was prepared by John Gray and can be downloaded as a PDF File to your computer, tablet or smartphone. It can also be printed out as an A6 format booklet.
Generally the guide provides no more than is sufficient for navigation purposes. It assumes that cyclists are adventurous and enjoy discovering things for themselves and don’t need directions to things like coffee shops.
Directions are given to the starting point for each ride and a map of the route is provided. The maps might look basic but are carefully drawn with unnecessary information excluded to provide clarity. (Tourist maps of the areas covered are readily available at local visitor centres for anyone not familiar with the local geography.)
The rides are listed in increasing order of difficulty with a rating scale from 1-10. Information is provided on distance, hills and road surface, e.g. bitumen or gravel. Specific navigation directions and intermediate distances are also given.
