58km Course

SCENIC, EXCITING, REWARDING, CHALLENGING - just a few words riders use to describe this awesome course!

Start your 58km journey in Coopers Reserve, Engadine and ride 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 spectacular hey?

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