A new brochure documenting everything a cyclist visiting the Cessnock local government area needs to know is now available.

Cessnock City Council's economic development team has partnered with the local cycling community to launch Cycle Hunter Valley.

The brochure contains suggested routes with information on starting points, length of ride, grading and surface type, along with toilet locations, parking options and scenic lookouts points where cyclists can take a snap during a ride.

Bike service points have also been created for cyclists who may need assistance during their ride.

Cessnock mayor Bob Pynsent congratulated everyone involved on the collaborative approach in developing the map and brochure contents.

"This document is just one example of our staff and community identifying opportunities during COVID-19," he said.

"Cycling is a safe activity, where all participants can social distance but still get out and about enjoying our beautiful region.

"There's a growing interest in this activity for visitors and now we can make their trip that much more enjoyable with this helpful resource."

The maps will be available at the Hunter Valley Visitor Information Centre and local bicycle shops, and will be online soon.
