  • A common theme amongst Sydney cyclists is that the cycle paths are terrible or non-existent. Well that is certainly true in middle suburbs like Punchbowl and Greenacre and much of the North Shore but its not the case as you head into the newer suburbs in the far west. Great small examples out west are…

  • 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.

  •   Sydney has a few popular lake rides that you can easily ride around. They are Iron Cove, Narrabeen Lagoon and Penrith on the Nepean River.  But the Georges River throws up a far bigger challenge out near Liverpool and its called Chipping Norton Lake.  Technically its just a large bulge in the river but as a bike rider,…

  • Sydneysiders love a lake loop and as evidenced by the crowds on Iron Cove, Narrabeen Lagoon and Penrith on the Nepean River. All coincidentally are about 8km. But there is a much bigger lake ride at Chipping Norton out near Liverpool, 4 times bigger. For this ride you need to be determined to make it…

  • Six months ago my wife and I headed to Mt Annan and the Australian Botanical Gardens near Campbelltown. It was hot and the place was so dry, it looked like mars. We didn’t like the look of the roads as there was no verge on the narrow road and we tend to potter around. We…
