Cowley Family

“Mountain biking, it’s just such a rush. When you think about going for a ride the next day, the night before you’re actually really excited about getting out in the bush, back to nature – it recharges the soul.”

Nicole and Adam Cowley family moved their family to the Central Coast seven years ago, they needed somewhere to settle down where they had access sustainable jobs, fantastic schooling for their kids, as well as a lot of activities to keep them outside and moving.

“As a family, we love living here on the Central Coast. It just has a really good outdoors lifestyle coupled with everything that you need to raise your children. Growing up for the kids on the Central Coast has been absolutely remarkable.”

They are an outdoors family and the Central Coast gives them every opportunity, either after school or on the weekends to get active and have good wholesome family fun. Whether it be heading into the hinterland to go mountain bike riding, or going to the beach for a surf the Cowley family are always up for an adventure.

The Cowley family are also proud and dedicated members of Central Coast Mountain Biking Club. They, along with the other volunteers of the Central Coast Mountain Bike Club dedicate much of their weekends and free time to building and maintaining spectacular MTB trails such as Ourimbah Mountain Bike Trail in the Ourimbah State Forest.

The Cowley family consider being a volunteer and part of the club an absolute privilege and love that they are able to help provide a facility that the Central Coast community can use.


If you want to give mountain biking a go, like the Cowley family, try the Ourimbah Mountain Bike Trail or get in touch with the Central Coast Mountain Biking Club.

The Forestry Corporation of NSW supports Central Coast Mountain Biking Club by providing trails for community use. #VisitNSWForests
