Registrations closed – click here for information
This year we raised funds to support a local, Jake Brook, who was “king hit” @ Dorrigo and now requires constant care. Read his story at www.jakebrook.com.au
The Ride has been shortened to two days. It takes you through some of the most scenic and challenging areas of the NSW coast. From beautiful beaches to lush, pristine rainforests and cool mountain streams and rivers this is one cycle trip that “has it all”. Here is a taste of the Ride:
We leave early from Coffs Harbour city centre and make our way over Bruxner Lookout with scenic views of the coast. Then through rainforests, undulating open landscape, & onto Kungala region for lunch. Enjoy the first afternoon after cycling with a swim in the river (or warm shower) and comfortable cabins at the Nymboida Canoe Centre.
We return to Coffs Harbour along picturesque East Bank Rd through to Coramba and down into Coffs Harbour.
Day One: Coffs Harbour to Nymbodia Distance 109 Km
Day Two: Nymbodia to Dorrigo 78 Km (no longer applicable)
Day Three: Dorrigo to Coffs Harbour 67 Km (no longer applicable)
*This tour event is sponsored by Dorrigo Urunga Bellingen Bicycle Users Group (DUBBUG), as part of their ride calendar. See www.dubbug.org.au for details.
