Add 25km and more to your M7 Cycleway Ride

A common theme amongst Sydney cyclists is that the cycle paths are terrible. Well that is certainly true in middle suburbs like Punchbowl and Greenacre and much of the North Shore but its not the case as you head into the newer suburbs in the far west. Great small examples out west are Potts Hill […]

Lane Cove Area

There is lots to ride in the Lane Cove area and the best is Lane Cove National Park which consists of very quiet roads and lots of bush. There are two good trails for commuting/scenery, the 17km long Epping Rd Cycleway and the shorter Shrimptons Creek cycleway to Ryde. But if you really want to […]

Doing something different at Prospect Reservoir

If you want to do something different, try turning right a kilometre after the Boothtown Aquaduct and heading into Pemulwuy.  The cycleways […]

The Bankstown Airport Loop – Videos

I enjoy the ride from East Hills to Canley Vale and Carramar. The trail is mostly bitumen and quite smooth. So one day I headed up this trail from Revesby then diverted around to Bankstown and back to Salt Pan Creek. There are some roads in the section running from Georges River to Bankstown but […]

Canberra – From Top to Bottom

As my friends Howie and Gaz were both arriving from the Hume Highway, I decided day 1 of our ride down the complete length of Canberra would start in the far north. I picked a football oval with lots of parking in Casey and we headed there. It was 8:30 in the morning and I […]
