Cycling in Sydney Australia
On Sunday 23 September, a Retro Ride is being held as part of the 2012 Bike Life Festival in sunny Manly. Dressed in your retro or vintage best, it's all about showcasing the stylish side of cycling and helping commemorate 111 years of cycling in Manly. A free breakfast is on from 9:30am for all riders before we take off at 10:00am. There are also prizes for Best Retro/Vintage Outfit' and 'Best Dressed Bike'.
Start: Outside Manly Art Gallery, West Esplanade, Manly. Meet at 9:30am for breakfast and 10:00 riding start.
Finish: Lagoon Park, Queenscliff at 11:00am in time for the launch of the Bike Life Festival.
Enquiries: (02) 9976 1654
For peoples coming from the city side, the ferry leaves wharf 3 (Opera House end) at Circular Quay; the 8:40am will allow time to get to the start in good time for the free breakfast, and the next one at 9:00am is still fine (1/2 hour triptime). Bikes travel free on the ferry, bike racks on board - beware the "Freshwater", it's a bit short on them, and bring a bungee cord to restrain your steed should there be a swell at the heads. Manly Art Gallery (start): turn left as you exit the wharf and ride along the beach promenade toward the aquarium - about 300m.
Thank you for the info on the ferry. I was just about to look it up..................sounds like a bit of fun........
Sounds fun and love to be there!
Ah......I was going to come on the Pashley, but with two other Folding Fanciers interested it might be better to ride a bit closer to the ground too!
Loving the enthusiasm for the retro ride :) will be a great day with the bike life festival at the end with heaps to do including bike labs, pedal power stages, bike exhibitors, bbq's, live entertainment and more.....
