If you’re an e-Bike rider, you could cover a lot of the Noosa Trail Network in a couple of days. If you’re equipped with a standard mountain bike, don’t expect an easy ride. Some trails are quite hilly and you need to be fit, but the scenery rewards still well outweigh the quad burn.
If you’re limited on time, ride Lake Macdonald up to Kin Kin and reward yourself with lunch at the Country Life Hotel. Or for a full day out, start at Cooran to ride down to Pomona for a pit-stop – lunch and maybe a sneaky G&T at Pomona Distilling Co. – then on to Cooroy.
There are local operators who can help you out with shuttle transfers and Spoke N Trail offers a full-day guided tour of the best bits, even cutting out the road climbs.
Road bikes aren’t left out, either. Throughout the year the trails play host to a series of cycling events – from the gruelling Noosa Enduro which follows the Network almost entirely, to the vintage-style gran fondo event, Noosa Strade Bianche (inspired by the ‘white gravel road’ event of the Tuscan countryside), and the one-day Noosa Classic.
