Glebe and North Balmain

A ride around Blackwattle Bay and Roselle Bay is fun, extremely scenic and relatively easy except for the bridge climb. ​This is an adult ride because you ride right next to some really busy roads with no protection on a 2-3m concrete path. Ride anti-clockwise so you are not the one next to the traffic. On the paths […]

Centennial Park and Redfern

Centennial Park Everyone rides the 4km loop at Centennial Park. Its great because you don’t have to stop often and you have 4m of bike zone. Eastern Sydney and City Map >> Centennial loop has one important feature, you don’t have to stop, just go around and around. Here are photos of people riding the […]

Sans Souci to Oatley and more

They say that Sydney is not so great for cycling and one of the areas where this rule of thumb applies is the area around Kogarah Bay and Hurstville. As I love the cycling around Oatley and along Botany Bay so much, I have gone over the maps many times and ventured into the area […]

The Slippery Slope – Gannons Park

We have some friends in a part of Sydney that people rarely visit. Its called Peakhurst. They like to comment on my pictures so this page will come as a surprise.  A few months ago I saw that the council was building a wide smooth concrete path down a hill with a good slope in […]

The Greater Sydney Bike Trail

For two years now I have been investigating the safe trails of Sydney. When I went to the Omafiets Dutch Bicycles Bike Touring talk night, the fantastic ladies inspired me to think about a multi-day bike trail around Sydney. Here is a slideshow of 220 km trail that I rode this week or you can […]

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 […]

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 […]
