Cycling into Bike Week

Is there any better way to get some exercise while taking in the breathtaking views of Sydney Olympic Park than getting on a bike and going for a relaxing ride?

With Bike Week in full swing now, there is no better reason to dust off that old bicycle, strap on a helmet and get riding around the Park on one of our many bike trails while at the same time discovering Olympic icons, spectacular parklands and areas of cultural heritage along the way.

NSW Bike Week is an annual celebration of cycling, encouraging people from all walks of life to get on a bike and ride, running from Saturday 17 September to Sunday 25 September.

Park Bikes, located on Murray Rose Ave in the Park, have started Parklife Cycling Club and are running two rides next Saturday; a beginner 20km ride with a free skills session, and a 50km intermediate ride.

Parklife Cycling Club is a fresh, new inclusive cycling community that provides support for all cyclists, non-racing and racing, non-members and members, through care, support and motivation, aiming to promote cycling as both a sport and a recreation.

Sydney Olympic Park will also be hosting the biggest ever Festival of Cycling throughout September and October, starting with a triathlon on Saturday 28 September.

With so many great bike riding opportunities in the Park, you won’t want to miss out on all the fun and excitement this season, so grab a friend, the kids or even just yourself and go for a ride we guarantee you’ll want to do over and over again!
