Gosford to Woy Woy bicycle path

The Central Coast just north of Sydney has a bicycle path that commences at Gosford and runs to Umina Beach – a distance of over 20 kilometres.  The Gosford to Woy Woy stretch is 11 kilometres.  The path is largely off road and as the path follows the line of a harbour it is very flat for its whole duration.

The bicycle path is for all ages.  It is well sign posted and has many attractions along the way.  In choosing Gosford to Woy Woy I stuck to conveniently located train stations.

Look out for:

-       A “front lawn library” that faces the path at about the halfway point between Gosford and Woy Woy.  If you take a book along you’ll not be disappointed as you freely swop it for another,

-       The Spike Milligan Bridge and its explanatory signs.  Spike Milligan is Woy Woy’s most famous son.

-       Fish and Chips at the Woy Woy Fisherman’s wharf just as the path arrives at Woy Woy.

-       Op shops in Woy Woy (Woy Woy seems to have more Op shops than any other place in Australia!).

The only danger with young ‘uns is that part of the path runs along a breakwall without any fencing.  A slight deviation in direction could see a rider and bicycle end in the water.  Trains run regularly on the Central Coast line.  Puncture risk is low.
