Android Phone App Update

Screenshot 1The Android version of the NSW Coastal Cycle Trail phone app has been updated.  This app is a reference tool for use on the road whilst cycling the coast of New South Wales, and those wishing to avoid the highways.  Our aim is to have bicycle friendly services (cafes, accommodation, transport, hire etc) marked along the way.  As you come across one that you like, be sure to let us know so we can include their details.  The app includes the ability to “phone ahead”.  Also included are ferry timetables and alternate routes.

The phone App can be downloaded here or access the Google Play store from your device and search for “NSW Coastal Cycle”

Note there is no “exit” button, so to reset the app, hold your settings button and then “swipe” the app to close it.

We recommend removing any old versions before installing the latest version.

Your ongoing feedback and recommendations is valuable.

Android Phone App Released

The trail goes for some 1,680 km. Do as little or as much as you like. As many parts of the cycle trail are unsigned, this app is essential for anyone wishing to avoid the highways.

Thanks for the Feedback

NSWCC signpostWe appreciate all the feedback we are receiving from cyclists travelling along the coast of NSW.  It is encouraging to see how popular it is and spurs us to develop this trail further.  Our current aim is to actively have the trail fully signposted and informative brochures available at all NSW tourist information centres along the coast.

Keep the feedback and support coming!  Enjoy our beautiful coastline and plan to stay a few days at places along the way.

Cycle the coast of NSW

Cycling NSW – Yamba area

Cycling NSW, along the coast of New South Wales, Australia. You will quickly discover why this is an epic ride. At nearly 1,680 km this cycle route passes through picturesque scenery and beaches. The ride is broken up into 42 sections and most are between 40 – 50 km. Each section ends in a location that provides various accommodation options.

Improved Access

Cycling the NSW coastline has never been easier. The pacific highway continues to be upgraded. Consequently, we now visit coastal towns without cycling on major highways.

The NSW Coastal Cycle trail connects existing cycle paths wherever possible.  Use the interactive maps on this web site to see details of the route.  Furthermore, download the android phone app to assist whilst on the road.

Local Attractions

Along the route, there are opportunities to visit local region attractions.  Therefore, be sure to plan a few days in the major regions and explore the local cycling attractions.

Cycling NSW Options

If you have never been cycling in NSW consider flying in to the Gold Coast international airport and cycling your way to Sydney (or in reverse), boxing your bike on the XPT train service, and/or cyling the south coast from Sydney towards Melbourne (or in reverse).

Feedback

Which ever way you travel, be sure to drop us a line and share your experience.  We would love to hear from you – your highs and lows!  Your feedback is valuable because it lets us know who is using the NSW coastal cycle trail and enables us to push harder for improvements.
