How many of you have driven or walked signs indicating one of Sydney’s bike trails and wondered where do they go … is this something for me? … My answer to those questions is that they go lots of places and that they are a great, if under-utilized, resource and are great for parents and children.
Sydney Bikes Trails are one of this cities hidden treasures. Whether you be on 2 wheels (and maybe using a Wee Rider – See my earlier post on them … great for taking the little one out on a ride) or on 3 or 4, depending on your pram or stroller, they are a great way to get out and see our beautiful city.
Once you know a place to start, you’ll be amazed at how many enjoyable rides/walks there are to explore. The majority of the paths are along dedicated bike paths, free of traffic, and pass through parks, along beaches and rivers, and via breathtaking lookouts. Some even have wonderful historic features, such as the Sydney Olympic Park track through Newington Armory and the Fernleigh path near Newcastle.
Most routes are clearly signposted but I think that it is worth checking out the RTA website and downloading the maps to plan your adventures.
I have done of a few rides and walks along some of the cyleways and I recommend them to you … have any of you done walks on the cyleways and what do you think … or do you have something similar near you … I would love to hear.
