New South Wales

New South Wales

New South Wales is a large state containing beautifully diverse terrain and scenery. It has a climate that is well-suited to cycling all year round, making it one of the best places to ride in Australia.

Audax rides are currently run out of Wagga Wagga, Parkes, Bathurst, Cowra, Forbes, Mudgee, Lithgow, the Hunter Valley, Jindabyne, Holbrook and Temora as well as the more densely populated Sydney, Illawarra and Central Coast areas. We also surround the ACT Region, which offer many rides in the southern part of New South Wales. Rides of varying distances and difficulty on a variety of surfaces are available almost every weekend of the year.

Newcastle Overnight
The weather gods really were looking down on us as I joined ~160 fellow riders on the Newcastle Overnight ride. The day had been wet and I was preparing for a soggy 170km up to Newcastle. But those fears were unfounded. We ended up with perfect conditions – little wind, comfortable temps and zero rain.

What do you do when you have an urgent family issue that is 2000km away and your non-riding significant other is unable to fly due to recent medical procedures? Obviously, the answer is drive. We had a week or so of getting the thumbs up from the medics for the road travel so I prepared […]
