Biking Tracks in NSW

There is an abundance of cycle and mountain bike tracks throughout NSW, from on-road trails to off-road rides through national parks and vineyards, outback landscapes and rainforests, and along beachfronts. They range from short, easy rides suitable for the whole family, to half-day and full-day rides through some of the most beautiful scenery in the region.

Mountain biking, Blue Mountains

Cycleways roll throughout the cities, towns, regional areas and natural landscapes of NSW. There are plenty of dedicated paths and lanes for cycling, and there are also a wide range of mountain bike trails, tracks and terrains, ranging from easy tracks for those just starting out on two wheels, to trails that are a little more challenging.

Head to the Blue Mountains for mountain bike touring with direct access to some excellent mountain trails. Once the snow has melted, you can cycle the trails and tracks of the Snowy Mountains, with paths for beginners, intermediate and expert mountain bikers, many with fantastic views of the region.

A tandem bicycle tour around the Hunter Valley vineyards is great fun, or have a go at Tommos Loop on the Central Coast, a six hour exploration of the Brisbane Water National Park. Cycling around Lord Howe Island is one of the best ways to explore this World Heritage-listed paradise.

Many NSW towns and cities have established cycleways, which are a great way to get around town. Cycling on local roads, in shared pedestrian/cyclists zones, or on separate cycle paths can get you from A to B in many NSW regions, with dedicated cycle networks developing in Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong, as well as between major regional centres. Make sure you wear a helmet and follow the NSW road rules wherever you ride.
