  • There has been a bit of press about the Greater Sydney BikeTrail lately including this post from Bicycle NSW. The trail is over 200km in its classic sightseeing route and can be trimmed to 150km and you can still catch most of the highlights. To whet your appetitie, check out the slideshow of 220 km…

  • Lane Cove Area

    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…

  • 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…

  •   After first riding around Sydney I felt content that I had conquered the big one. Then one day I thought can I trim it down so its more accessible to those that only have a long weekend.  The 147km condensed Sydney bike trail was worked out and it still follows the rules of the…

  • We rode from Cammeray to Lane Cove Park a few months back. It’s a great circuit. I recommend that you start near Tunks Park and make your way to the trails under the freeway. You then branch of towards Chatswood and the paths winding up to Chatswood are really nice. Near Chatwwood there are some…

  • Beat the Bus no 8 features one of my favourite trails, Shrimptons Creek. It starts at Top Ryde Shopping Centre and heads to Macquarie University and shops. Its very easy, if you live in North Ryde or Denistone East and head to Macquarie University or shops or the offices, you should be riding this trail…

  • I have ridden through the Greenwich area on Sydney’s north shore a few times and everytime I seem to take a different route. As a result, my maps are a little jumbled. But the area is so nice, it was time to make a decision on the good bits. I have decided the one way…
