Bike Trails In Barwon Heads That Are Great For Cycling.

Our recommended bike trail in Barwon Heads.

There are some great bike trails in Barwon Heads for cycling. I have included a map for you too. The first is along the river, and the second is along Thirteenth Beach.

 If you enjoy cycling then a lovely bike trail to take from 100 Hitchcock (red dot on the map below) is along the Barwon River. We normally cut through the park at the top of Hitchcock Avenue, then ride to the bend in Carr street. From there is a reasonable distance of flat, safe riding. Perfectly suited for kids too. The path follows the meandering river, through nature reserve and farmland. Its so peaceful and a hidden treasure mostly only the locals know about. It is also ideal for wheelchair users as it is flat gravel.  Pack a picnic and enjoy the beauty that is Barwon Heads.

Another bike trail runs along the beach. For the more serious cyclists amongst you then the road that follows along the thirteenth beach is the place to ride. A gentle undulating road that has glimpses of the surf. The traffic is expecting cyclists on the road so drivers are usually courteous. Ride to the windmill and back or do the big loop, after getting to the windmill turn right and head up to Bluestone School Road and then back along Barwon Heads Road into town.

It’s no wonder the great Cadel Evans lives in Barwon Heads. Who knows? Maybe you’ll see him whizzing by! And if you are interested in Cadel’s Great Ocean Bike Race event in late January, check out our blog post about it here.
