Cycling through Kiama’s stunning scenery

April 18, 2024 10:54 am in by

Kiama is renowned for breathtaking coastal landscape and picturesque countryside, traditionally explored on foot.

The new Kiama Rides guide shows you how to explore all this on the freedom of a bike.

The pocket-sized booklet outlines nine diverse rides catering to riders with a range of skills and experience: from leisurely, family-friendly outings to more challenging routes that can be extended to excite experienced cyclists.

Destination Kiama Chair Matt Brown said that “this new Kiama Rides guide has filled the missing piece of our information offering and sits neatly beside our other pocket-sized Kiama Walks, Kiama Eats and our favourite retro Kiama Touring Map.”

“The staff and volunteers are looking forward to being able to hand this out to the 60,000 plus visitors to the centre each year,” Cr Brown said.

The rides navigate Kiama’s most scenic locales, including the serene coastlines of Gerroa and Gerringong, the iconic Blowholes and rock formations of Kiama and Bombo, as well as the edges of the Minnamurra River.

The guide also offers routes through the dairy paddocks of Jamberoo where cyclists can take in the rural views and wave to resident cows.

Council engaged Bicycle NSW representative Peter McClean as well as the local Kiama Bike User Group (KBUG), to ensure we were providing the most practical information possible from a biker’s perspective.

An additional and useful feature of Kiama Rides is a convenient key, directing cyclists to essential amenities such as water refill stations, coffee stops, and scenic viewpoints along the way.

The compact pocket guide is now available for pickup at the Kiama Visitor Centre at Blowhole Point.

An online version is also available via the Destination Kiama website.
