Some shared pathway and some coastal road. Always beautiful with coffee shop options along the way.

 

Ulverstone Penguin Loop

Got to be the perfect short ride. Rural and coastal scenery to die for. Undulations along the way will elevate the heart rate...but not too much.

 

Penguin to Riana via Mt Duncan

 

19.5

 

Intermediate

 

A lot of quiet gravel road in some places badly eroded, however the bushland is majestic! Not suited to road bikes.

 

Gunns Plains

Beginner

 

Start at Bannons Park and follow the valley floor taking in the serenity. Wings Farm offers an opportunity for food and refreshments. One for the cycle tourers!

Hilly, however Ferndene is a gem and worth the effort.

The ride up the Forth River valley is a treat. After crossing the Forth bridge with the rolling rural landscape, the views down the Forth Valley and to Bass Strait are a delight. It’s all quintessential Tassie!
