It could be the weather or it could be the famous triathlons held along the Sunshine Coast each year: whatever the reason, it is certain that cycling is a popular past time on the Sunshine Coast. It is also a past time that tourists can get involved in and it allows them the chance to experience the coast from an entirely new perspective.

If you are keen to meet up with some local cyclists, then you can join a local ride any day of the week run by the Sunshine Coast Cycling crew. Each day they schedule a different circuit, with the average cycling length being around 50 km. Most of these circuits explore different areas of the Noosa Shire Council and being a social bunch they generally stop for a cappuccino and chat at the end of the ride.

At the polar opposite of the Sunshine Coast down south at Caloundra, there are 350 km of pathways and 36,000 hectares of parkland and bushland that is ideal for exploring from the saddle of your bike. Just some of the paths and maps that have been put together by the local council for cyclists include tracks through the Mooloolah Valley, coastal tracks from Buddina to Minyama, paths along Moffat Beach, Shelly Beach and Kings Beach and tracks around the stunning Glasshouse Mountains.

Regardless of whether you are a serious cyclist or a fun loving novice, you will have a great time discovering the great outdoors around the Sunshine Coast with your feet in the stirrups of a ten speed.
