Roads and Pathways
Those with slick tyres have cause for celebration. Road warriors can test themselves on sections of the UCI Road World Championships course, from a Mt Keira climb, to a tough city section, or stunning coastal trek from Bald Hill to Wollongong, taking in Sea Cliff Bridge.
You will find these routes and more digitally logged on STRAVA at Visit Wollongong, where you can also join Club Wollongong to see what local riders are tackling. There’s a 45km northern loop incorporating Royal National Park, or the chance to extend a southern ride to Kiama, via Jamberoo’s quaint farmland, or an ascent of Macquarie Pass.
To explore Wollongong more leisurely, or with little tackers in tow, take advantage of our extensive network of shared pathways. There’s the spectacular ‘Blue Mile’ incorporating Wollongong Harbour, pop-up cycleways improving access from the university to the beach, the ocean-hugging 14km Thirroul to North Wollongong route, or coastal pathways linking to Kiama, perfect for e-bike bandits.
