This ride takes you along the coast and through the amazing Crowdy Bay National Park. Here there are truly unspoilt beaches, wild campsites, lots of native animals and wonderful old trees. It is certainly a place to stay awhile (but take food and water!). Crowdy Bay is fantastic with views across the bay and along the coast. After that there is a cycle up the historic Manning Valley with views across to the Great Dividing Range.
