Cycling on the Sunshine Coast Cycling on the Sunshine Coast

Why not leave the car at home and ride your bike instead?

The Sunshine Coast is a fantastic place to explore by foot or bicycle with an abundance of on and off road bicycle lanes and bush trails.

The adventurous can take on the rocky shoreline, coastal lowlands, saltwater lakes and river system or the extensive hinterland trail network which is ideal for long distance cycling or the thrills of off-road mountain biking. 

Commuters or tourists wanting to take in the scenery at a slower pace are well catered for on the Sunshine Coast. A majority of the major service centres and tourist attractions are located within close proximity to bike paths or cycle lanes.

Cycling has a wide range of benefits; health, financial and environmental, so by cycling to work, to the local shop, to the beach or to University you are making a positive contribution to your own health and the environment.

There are a number of cycling clubs and organisations on the Coast and regular cycling events throughout the year. The links page has more information on how to make the most of cycling on the Coast.

When cycling it is important to ride safely and be aware of the road rules. For further information on the best places to take your two wheels on the Sunshine Coast, TravelSmart Sunshine Coast have compiled a range of maps and publications to make your cycling journey as safe as possible.

Whether you have your own bike, are looking to purchase one, or hire one, there is a diverse and exciting region out there waiting to be explored.

So get out of the car, put on a helmet and get cycling today.
