Cycling group welcomes increase in people cycling

A social cycling group which often organises rides from Woy Woy has commented on an apparent increase in the numbers of people cycling.

Central Coast Bicycle Users Group president Mr Alan Corven said he was pleased to see the increase.

"I've noticed a lot more individuals and families getting out and about on their bikes, especially on the shared pathways along our waterways."

"It's great to see the surge given it's not only better for the environment, our health, and our pockets - it also has the added benefit of keeping us socially distanced."

The group's next ride will be from Woy Woy station to Cowan and return, a distance of 95 kilometres, on August 16.

The ride is graded as medium-hard, with an estimated duration of six hours and an average speed of 22-24kph.

Mr Corven said this is "a moderate-paced ride from Woy Woy to Pie in the Sky cafe Cowan and back, through the picturesque Brisbane Water National Park and over the Hawkesbury River.

"Designed for more experienced riders, we mostly utilise the old Pacific Hwy and include five longish climbs - nothing too steep, but you'll certainly know you've been up a few hills by the time you get home."

Liesl Tesch MP, Member for Gosford says she's thrilled to see our community cycling their way out of COVID.

"It's easy to get consumed by fear and ironically neglect your health rather than keep fit."

"I'm really happy to see people from all walks of life in our community out and about enjoying the sunshine, the beauty of the Central Coast and using our shared pathways."
