Last Sunday nine cyclists, including two visitors from New Zealand, rode from Huskisson to Vincentia via Plantation Point and return.

Four cyclists started from the Falls Creek Fire Station, adding an extra 20 kilometres to the total distance.

The morning was sunny with a cool southerly breeze.

Picturesque Jervis Bay was viewed from the excellent cycle path, winding its way beside the numerous beaches, which were being pounded by medium surf.

It was a relaxing and pleasant morning cycle.

Thursday's ride attracted 13 mountain bikers for an awesome adventure in the Currambene State Forest, from Worrigee to Myola, Callala Beach and Callala Bay. Cyclists travelled along fire trails, with areas of deep ruts and large water crossings to be skirted around, then on single lane tracks weaving between trees, fallen logs and many sticks.

It was an adrenalin producing experience, which was completed without injuries.

This Thursday's midweek mountain bike ride on July 24 will start at 9am from the Aviation Park Complex, Wugan Street, Nowra Hill.

For a shorter ride start from the corner of Deans Gap and Braidwood roads at about 10am.

It will be a moderate 35 kilometre mountain bike ride to Hylands Lookout and return.

Cyclists will use bitumen with some traffic, bush tracks and unsealed roads.

There will be no facilities so bring water and snacks.

Refreshments will be available at South Nowra after the ride.
