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. In the past decade cycling trips have doubled in inner Sydney.

Our cycling strategy and action plan sets our vision for a bike friendly city. We are committed to making bicycle transport easier and safer, so it is an attractive option for more people.

Connecting the bike network is one of our best opportunities to keep our city moving.

The network features 11 regional routes and local connections, made up of separated cycleways, shared paths, bike lines and light and slow traffic streets.

Where we have built separated cycleways the number of bike trips have doubled and trebled in some places. Overall the number of bike trips has doubled since 2010.

We also support people to ride through courses and events. Our popular weekly bike-riding and bike-maintenance courses give new and experienced riders the skills they need to ride comfortably in Sydney traffic.

And 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 is Australia's largest cycling festival. Held in spring, it features more than 30 events including, Light the City, The Big Adventure, National Ride2Work Day and Bicycle NSW's Spring Cycle.
