90km Course

PICTURESQUE, BREATH-TAKING, CHALLENGING, REWARDING - just a few words riders have used to describe this incredible course!

Start your 90km* journey in Sydney and ride inland past Kangaroo Point over the Georges River, through the Royal National Park past Waterfall to the Otford Lookout at Stanwell Tops, along the spectacular Sea Cliff Bridge, then along the coast through to a backdrop of sun, sand and surf in Wollongong…sounds pretty remarkable hey?

P.S. We have listened to your feedback and will be making the start site flow more smoothly than in previous years. This might mean we change the location of the start site for you and we are 90% there so hold onto your bikes and we’ll keep you posted on this exciting news. However fear not the start site location will still remain in a central Sydney location. 

Check out the brilliant scenery that you’ll enjoy in the MS Gong Ride from Sydney
