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 inspire you to ride around Sydney or even work out how to ride around your own city if you live somewhere else. Now for notes on people that have riden around Sydney See the trails on their own Google Map here >>
