  • On a really nice Saturday in January, I headed off to try and find a workable easy way to connect the wonderful Whites Creek Lane bike path in Annandale with the equally wonderful Sydney Park in Erskinville. That meant I would have to ride down to Pyrmont and head over the Anzac bridge and then…

    Pools on Bike Trails in Sydney

    Its hot, time to think swimming pools in Sydney. This page features pools that are on the bike trails of Sydney. Probably a good idea to start riding from the pool if you can so you can finish off with a relaxing swim and then hop on the train or in the car. Checklist for…

  • When I first started thinking about Sydney trails, my head was filled with thoughts of steep hills, cars and faded white pictures of bikes on green patches on the road. After a much exploring, I can now reveal that Sydney has some very good places to ride if you have the motivation to going exploring.…

  • 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…

  • This very scenic video shows the early weekend ride from Rushcutters Bay to Darling Harbour using the Cahill Expressway shared path. The views from the shared path above Circular Quay are really good and you are a long ways a way from the crowds. Unfortunately you soon will come across a few runners and not…

  • For Beat the Bus no 5, Nick Carreiro from the Sydney Commuters FaceBook group said “I generally do Alexandria to the Darling Quarter in 15-20min by bike and it takes 30min+ for train or bus in peak hour.” Back to me, I needed an easy ride after a few weeks of feeling poorly, this was…

    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.…
