The reason this is one of Sydney’s most popular cycleways is that it is safe, scenic, and easily adjusted in length and route variation. You you can ride south on the Bayside path to Cronulla (or Kurnell); or go west along the Cook’s River to Flemington (or to Olympic Park). If you combine the possibilities, a return trip from Olympic Park to Kurnell would be around 90kms. You can also mix your riding styles, from smooth wide shared cycleways, to the dirt trails in the sand-dune regions between Kurnell and Cronulla.
This particular ride stared near the Barton Park Golf Driving Range and headed along the Bayside suburbs of Kyeemagh, Brighton-le-Sands, Monterey, Ramsgate, Dolls Point and Sandringham. After crossing the Captain Cook’s Bridge, you go through Taren Point, past the Greenhills Skate Park where you turn into the fascinating Cronulla sand-hills region. There you join the dirt trail that takes you back to Cronulla Village and some great cafes and bakeries.
