This page contains the information provided by Shoalhaven City Council on cycling routes in the Shoalhaven, as well as, hints on bicycle safety. Cycle routes included are both for road and off-road bikes. Cycling in a rural area needs more thought and preparation than town trips. The routes connecting major population centres carry heavy traffic, and few have special provisions for cyclists. On the other hand, if you ride away from the main roads, using the many beautiful bush routes, with little traffic you need to be totally self-sufficient.
