The Greater Sydney Bike Trail

After listening to some inspiring ladies at the Bike-packing talk night at Omafiets in Redfern and then heading to The Big Bike Film Night at the Randwick Ritz, I realised it was time to complete a challenge of my own. A thought bubble came to me, why not ride around Sydney. Hopefully this page will […]

Darling Harbour

If you can get out early, this is a fabulous ride. Once the tourists and workers start heading off for lunch, the crowds are huge. Its dead flat, the trail is generally loaded with people, there is a bit of road riding near the bridge. 20km of riding around if you go between the Anzac and […]

The Goods Line to Darling Harbour

A great little trail that runs from Central Station down to the really good Darling Harbour trail. If you get off at Central Station, head for the Redfern/south end next to Devonshire St. Now head north-west towards UTS/Railway Square/Darling Harbour down the 400m long Devonshire St tunnel. You will need to walk your bike through […]

East to the Opera House

Cycling from Central Station to get views of the Sydney Opera House and travel a safe route, this is possible and its quite an entertaining ride. The key to this ride is Bourke Street on the east side of Surry Hills. This actually isn’t too far from Central Station and you can ride the Surry […]

Iron Cove Area

Iron Cove Get up early, hop on a train to Summer Hill and ride down and around Iron Cove for 15km of fun. I promise you won’t be disappointed. Its flat, the tracks are wide but if its sunny and after 8am and the weekend, it will be very busy. Runners and walkers call the 8km […]

The Botany Bay Area – south of the airport

Brighton le Sands and Botany Bay Riding from Kendrick Park in Tempe through to the Captain Cook Bridge via Brighton Le Sands is 15km and its dead flat. Except for sunny weekends when there are people to dodge, its a super trail. You probably will not stop at Brighton le Sands, you will likely continue […]

La Perouse Area

La Perouse If you want to ride 10km and see a fort, beaches, wharfs, a cemetery and East Sydney’s latest kids park, head to La Perouse. See the the trail on the Eastern Sydney map >> With kids and teens, start at the terrific new Chifley Sports Reserve on Bunnerong Rd. There is a 1 km […]

Salt Pan Creek Area

The Salt Pan Creek Trail in Riverwood There is some excellent exploring to be done on bike and on foot around Salt Pan Creek which is in the suburb of Riverwood. See bike trails in the Salt Pan Area >> I started my ride from John Mountford Reserve which is really handy to the corner […]

The Gates to the Woronora Pipeline

Getting to the Woronora Pipeline trail requires you to negotiate gates that are designed to keep motor bikes out and sort of let bikes through.  Here are the gates on the trails that get you to The Needles, a picturesque swimming hole.  Its a tricky area to get around and never go there if there […]
