Lake Macquarie Cycle Paths
Lake Macquarie City Council has put out a pamphlet about their cycle paths. There are some very interesting paths particularly what is essentially an extension of the Fernleigh Track from Belmont to Booragul which adds around 36 klm return. Some of our members rode Fernleigh Track some time ago and enjoyed the variety.
We are thinking about doing the Adamstown to Booragul return and welcome anyone who wishes to ride with us. Please contact us to register interest or enquire.
The pamphlet can be found at http://www.lakemac.com.au/downloads/E6C346D097EDFF30CD267AEE739B8D2DBBD5470F.pdf
Here is an email I received to my enquiry about the above for Central Coast Touring Cycle Club

About Port Stephens Cycle Group
We are a Bicycle User Group (BUG) who have organized rides around the bay area. Our rides start and finish from the same points and cater for all ages and standards. The rides vary from 15klm up to 50+klm.
We are not competitive simply a social group who are hoping to grow. Being “real” bike riders we always have a coffee stop usually at the mid point of a ride but some of our shorter rides will start and finish near a cafe.
The aim is to get riders to share their routes and lead rides along these routes.
We also act as advocacy for cycling related manners around eastern Port Stephens consulting with Council on important matters as they crop up.
Our rides are listed in our Rides Calendar and Pushon http://www.pushon.com.au/rides/RidesCalendar_filter.asp
