Event Description


  • This is the 3rd annual Big Family Fun Ride.  We’ll celebrate with three routes this year:
    • Beginners’ Route ~ 3 km, easy mainly down hill gradient for young children.
    • Intermediate Route ~ 5.5 km, with several moderate hills.
    • More Accomplished Riders’ Group ~ 10 km, with hills and some less even surfaces.


  • The Big Family Fun Ride will allow families and cyclists to experience the new links of shared user pathways that have recently been completed in Lane Cove along with links that are in the pipeline. Visit our Facebook page to see and choose your route.


  • The Lane Cove Council’s Bicycle Advisory Committee invites families, children, all cyclists and older residents who may not normally ride a bike, but would like to enjoy a cycling adventure, to pump up their tyres, check the brakes and join them for a safe, largely off-the-road fun ride, which will be opened by the Mayor, David Brooks-Horne.


  • All three routes will finish at Blackman Park where participants will cycle along the new shared pathway around the far side of the playing fields, to the play area where there will be a Sausage Sizzle and activities. Live music with Phil Hitchcock, face painting, animal balloons and some fun games [to include a three legged and sack race] are all part of the festivities.


  • The Great Euro Circus are giving away 10 complimentary child tickets to the circus, for their show starting at 3 pm, immediately after the Big Family Fun Ride festivities. To be in the running you will need to enter the fun games and activities in the afternoon.


  • The Bicycle Advisory Committee urge you to register online prior to the event to avoid the queues. You will be emailed a ticket which you need to print and bring with you to the table at the START of the ride. You will then be issued with a sticky label for your helmet. If you are unable to register online, you can register on the day, from 10.15 am, at the start, but please don’t leave this until the last minute or you might miss out.


  • There is no entry charge, but please bring some money for sausages and drinks.

      Proceeds go towards the cost of running the event, which is kindly supported by the Lane Cove Council and part of Lane Cove’s Cameraygal Festival.

We are still looking for a few volunteers to be marshals for the ride. This will involve less than an hour of time and afterwards you can enjoy the rest of the ride & a free sausage. If you can help please call Don Murchison on 9906 2350 or Russ Webber on 0405 404 005.  Thanks & Happy Cycling,  from DON.
