If you love getting close to nature and getting away from crowds then this is the ride for you. We will drop you off at at Kianga Road where you will start your ride. (This avoids riding on the highway). The loop from Kianga Road via the Wagonga Scenic Drive back in to Narooma is one of our favourite cycle routes as there is always so much to see. The loop takes in stunning vistas over the Wagonga Inlet from the lookout high up on the hill with views right out to sea including to Baranguba (Montague Island.) Riding mainly on quiet dirt roads there is no better way to connect with friends and take in all of the beauty of the surrounds. Look out for the incredible wildlife. We have spotted wallabies, echidnas, and even a gorgeous wombat (as seen in the photo taken by one of our clients).
There is the most beautiful picnic area at the back of the Wagonga Inlet at Brices Bay. Stop and enjoy your local produce picnic with views over the Wagonga Inlet oyster leases. This is a long ride with lots of steep hills so stopping in such a tranquil setting is good to give you a rest before setting off again. The last part of the loop takes in stunning dairy pastures and more amazing views over the water. (Please see the Wagonga Loop and Wagonga Princes Self Guided Tour for the option to ride as far as Brices Bay and then put the bikes on to the Wagonga Princess at Brices Bay and enjoy a leisurely guided cruise back in to Narooma)
As mentioned this ride has a number of very steep hills. Whilst the e-bikes make climbing the hills manageable this ride is not suitable for young children and would most suit intermediate to advanced riders. Please also note there are no facilities anywhere on this ride so please make sure you bring plenty of water with you.
There is no better way to explore the area around Narooma and to re-connect with nature than by e-bike (electric bike). Immerse yourself in nature with minimal impact by simply cycling through it. Our e-bikes can either be ridden like a normal bike with no assist or adjust the assist to give maximum help. You still have to pedal but the assist helps you to get up hills easily allowing you to enjoy the scenery and ride further. We also have padded gel seats for extra comfort. The e-bikes are so much fun.
One of the most popular trails to ride is the spectacular Narooma to Dalmeny Coastal Trail where you may spot seals, whales and other incredible marine life. There are many more trails around the hinterland of Narooma to suit different fitness levels and time available. Did you know there are trails to Central Tilba, Mystery Bay and around the Wagonga Inlet? The e-bikes make these trails so much easier and are an eco friendly way to see the beautiful scenery.
