If you’re looking for something to do this summer in Sydney, why not jump on two wheels and explore the amazing bike trails this metropolis has to offer? Take a breath of fresh air and enjoy the sea breeze as you cycle through some of Sydney’s parks and alongside its amazing beaches. And you don’t have to be Cadel Evans, these trials are time well spent for all riders. From little tots on balance bikes to those preparing for the Tour Down Under.
The bay run
This 7km loop follows the shores of Iron Cove. It travels through parkland, covers Lilyfield, Drummoyne and Rodd Point, and you’ll never be more than 20 meters from the waterfront. The ride has excellent views of the bay, in the middle of which lies Rodd Island.
Riding a bike is a great way to spend time, see different places and improve your health and wellbeing. Olympic Park is a great place to spend the day on your bike with rides from 11km to 5.5km. A cruiser and commuter bike are the perfect matches to ride the calm tracks, enjoy art installations and lookouts.
Parramatta Heritage trail
If you’re interested in adding something extra to your ride and having a little adventure. A history lesson while cruising along the Parramatta heritage trail is a must-do in Sydney. Ebikes are the way to go riding this 19km loop. You’ll be able to complete the whole loop while being able to take in all of the 18th-century buildings without breaking a sweat.
There’s a reason this 3.8km loop along Grand drive has been bringing cyclists here for over 100 years. With its car-free level paths, learners’ cycleway and amazing lush scenery it’s no surprise that more than 750,000 people are jumping on two wheels and checking out the park.
