Sydney is riding
More and more Sydneysiders are turning to 2 wheels to commute to work, stay fit, reduce travelling times or just for fun.
The City of Sydney is building a network of 10 priority regional routes to help people on bikes get to their destination quickly, conveniently and safely.
So far, we have created 12.5km of separated cycleways, 60km of shared paths and 40km of other infrastructure.
Where separated paths have been introduced the number of bike trips have doubled and trebled in some places. Overall the number of bike trips has doubled since 2010. Commuter periods are peak cycling times, proving that it is being used as a viable get-to-work transport option.
The City offers weekly bike-riding and bike-maintenance courses to give new and experienced riders the skills they need to ride comfortably in Sydney traffic. City staff are out and about each week during peak hours encouraging people riding bikes and people walking to be alert and aware on shared paths.
The annual Sydney Rides Festival in October is Australia's largest cycling festival, featuring more than 20 events over 3 weeks including Sydney Rides the Park, Light the City, National Ride2Work Day and Bicycle NSW's Spring Cycle.
Just some of the benefits of an improved cycling network in the local area include:
- reduced congestion
- improved health
- greater liveability
- a cheaper way for people to get around
- a safer cycling network.
Sydney Cycleways is a rich resource for both budding and experienced riders. It features maps of all the cycling paths and networks, road rules and riding advice, as well as information about local events and courses.
