As you explore the trails network, you will come across great spots to stop and rest, have a picnic or a coffee, or just enjoy the view. So if you have been thinking about improving your fitness, or spending more time relaxing with friends and family, why not jump on a bike and see where it takes you. After all, ‘the journey is half the fun’ when you choose to ride a bicycle in Cowra.
Cowra is a great place to escape on your bike. The Cowra Rides Guide offers riders of all ages enjoyable access to the region’s natural environment and places of interest. Most trails are either on country roads or off-road shared paths. One of the most popular trails is a ride at the Cowra Peace Precinct. All the family can enjoy the panoramic views of the Lachlan Valley while riding to Bellevue Hill Lookout, the Cowra Japanese Garden and the historic Cowra POW Camp. This trail also links to Farm Road for an extended family tour.
The more adventurous can head to Wyangala to find many trails ideal for mountain bike riding. A whole weekend can be spent exploring the Wyangala Waters State Park. Mix up your visit with a spot of fishing, boating or hiking, finished off with a meal at the Country Club. Most of all, Cowra is a popular road touring destination. Cyclists from all over the country visit the Shire to ride some of the quietest, smoothest and beautiful roads around. There is one section of the Billimari Loop that you will swear you are riding in the south of France.
For advice on the best trail for you and points of interest along the way, visit the Cowra Visitor Information Centre, located at the junction of the Lachlan Valley Way, Mid-Western Highway and Olympic Highway. You can access the trails network easily from there and Centre staff can also steer you in the right direction for meals, accommodation and other attractions and adventures.
