Cycling is cool again. What was once a lark as a child has developed into many things: a fitness regime, a means of commuting, weekend relaxation and an extreme way to test your body.

If you're looking for places to cycle on the North Shore, you're in luck. From cycling clubs to race, loops, trails and parks, there's no shortage of options.

Cycling clubs on the North Shore

While some people enjoy the solitude of a solo cycle, for others it's a way to meet like-minded people. If you want to meet some fellow cyclists, there are some great cycling clubs in Sydney

Some of the best-regarded include:

EasyRiders

Established in 2006, EasyRiders came about because of the frustration of several North Shore residents about traffic levels and public transport issues. They got together to cycle into town and the daily commute continues to this day.

Meeting at Gordon, the group cycles into town to start the working day. Some members meet at the weekend, too, for longer rides.

Northern Sydney Cycling Club

One of the older cycling clubs, NSCC has a history of more than 70 years. Based around The Hills and Hornsby, the group meets up regularly for racing, bunch training and casual rides.

Cammeray Roadies

Cammeray Roadies meet three times a week ‒ Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays ‒ as well as ad hoc rides organised online.

The regular rides vary in length (from 25km to 70km) meaning you can pick a day that best suits your habits and endurance levels.

Best North Shore cycling routes

If you'd prefer to go it alone, or perhaps just with a close friend or two, here are some of the best bike tracks, races and cycling routes in Sydney.

Three Gorges

The Three Gorges trail is close to 100km and sees cyclists climb around 1800m in that time; it's definitely not the route to try if you're just getting back into cycling.

However, if you're fit, experienced and looking for a new adventure, this scenic trail is one to add to the list. Officially starting and ending in Mosman, the main loop begins between Pymble and Turramurra, so it's easy to stop and start this track in many areas of the North Shore.

Chatswood to Epping

If you're looking for inspiration, the Strava and Map My Ride websites are full of tested trails.

While Three Gorges is one of the more intensive routes, there are shorter and less hilly options available, such as this 11km trek, with 175m of elevation, from Chatswood to Epping.

If you're feeling up to it, you can cycle back, too, but the train line gives an easy way for you to return home well-rested.

The Bobbin Head Cycle Classic

Now in its ninth year, The Bobbin Head Cycle Classic is a charity ride held in the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park.

This year the event is held on 29 March and has four routes, ranging from 27km to 104km.

Each participant is encouraged to raise funds for one of the many charities that support The Bobbo. Half of all funds raised go to Lifeline, while another eight charities benefit as well.

Jubes Mountain Bike Park

In Wahroonga, the
Jubes Mountain Bike Park is a facility designed for those who want to play with their bikes rather than just go from A to B.

At Jubes, there are three main sections: tracks to help train your upper body, a skill development section with different surfaces and trail widths, and a single track that puts all your skills to the test.
