Sydney Rides Festival

Festivals, Play, Sydney / 8 October 2014

Two wheels are becoming a more popular mode of transport than four wheels when it comes to getting around Sydney. Thanks to the City Of Sydney’s bike lanes and other initiatives, cycling in Sydney is on the rise. The Sydney Cycleways are celebrating this with the Sydney Rides Festival. Different cycle events for different levels are happening over the next two weeks. Whether you’re a casual rider or spandex-wearing professional there’s something for everyone.
Signature rides such as the Sydney Rides To Work, Sydney Rides The City and Sydney Rides The Night will take place.
