Central Coast Bicycle User Group (CCBUG) will continue its Social Sunday Cycles sessions with a ride to start at Fisherman’s Wharf, Woy Woy, on January 17.
The free ride aims to help people feel confident about riding on the road.
CCBUG President, Alan Corvy, said the ride would be around 20kms in total and done at a relaxed paced on relatively quiet roads.
“We will also stop for a coffee and a chat along the way; that is the social part,” Corvy said.
“We are trying to get more people who would normally ride on shared paths to start riding on the road, so then they can ride to other places and are not just stuck on the footpaths.
“We will ride in small groups to make sure everyone is together, safe, and following the road rules.”
Corvy started CCBUG in 2013.
“We started out as an advocacy group to try and work with the Council and State Government to improve facilities on the Coast,” he said.
“Then we ventured into rides.
“Most of our ride leaders work during the week, so it is mostly weekend rides.”
All rides are free, but Corvy encourages people to join the group if they would like to continue riding.
“There are just so many great places to visit by bicycle on the Coast – great beaches; beautiful waterways; scenic countryside; and lots of cafés and shops – and we want to help people get there in a healthy and environmentally friendly way,” he said.
“All our rides are conducted in a COVID-safe way.”
