Thanks, good answer! :-D
I reckon the Redfern/Prince Alfred/Chalmers/Liz is probably best, I've been staring at Bikely trying to work it out for the past half hour and came up with more or less that.
Thanks again, see you on the road.

Use the foot bridge at the end of Macarthur (outside the Powerhouse) to get to Tumbalong Park, then up to Hickson road from there via. Erskine.

Stuart, Here's another way to the way you have plotted on Bikely. This one avoids Elizabeth St.

Prince Alfred Park is under construction so you need to go from George street along Cleveland or back streets to get to the path near chalmers st by the school, or just take chalmers street .
You could take wells or james st to get to Pitt street, then cross chalmers.

Paul F's route is similar to my route to Neutral Bay via the CBD.
With respect I think mine is better. You don't have to cross over Broadway at Mountain Street and you avoid riding on Harris Street. I'd suggest continuing down Sussex Street and along Hickson Road and around under the Harbour Bridge and into Circular Quay from the north.
Here's my route:

Sorry, that should be Mike.
Comment by Paul F on February 17, 2010 at 10:12pm
Yeah, I like route, Ben by avoiding Harris St. And ditto on the Mike (not Stuart) comment.
Comment by Mike Stuart on February 17, 2010 at 11:16pm
Thanks guys for all your info!
Ben, I can't connect to that link unfortunately but I'll try to follow your directions. I think I'll cross Broadway at Mountain Street (I'm not sure where else to go from there?) then up Bulwara Road, and across the Pyrmont Bridge, up Sussex/Hickson, then finally Argyle Street and through the Rocks.

Mike, You should continue all the way down Shepherd Street (no need to turn off into Calder Road) and cross Cleveland Street. Continue down through roundabout at Myrtle Street and then next right off Shepherd into Daniels Street, then left into Buckland and immediately right into Blackfriars. This brings you to Abercrombie. Left into Abercrombie and across Broadway (try and get across to the right hand lane before Broadway, shouldn't be too hard if it's fairly early). Then right into either Thomas Street or Mary Ann Street and left into Jones Street (pedestrian mall off Thomas or across tiny park off Mary Ann) and continue all the way down Jones Street and right into Upper Fig Street (Jones Street is quiet and very wide, a mile better than riding along Bulwara Rd). From Upper Fig, left into Bulwara, under the Western Distributor and follow your existing path. I leave home on Wilson Street just above Burren Street at about 7.20am to 7.25am. Not sure what traffic is like after this time.

Hi Mike - just to through another spanner in the works;) My commute is from Stanmore, passing through WIlson St to Macquarie St.

My route takes me along Wilson to Redfern Station, left from there onto Chalmers St (stay in middle lane) which takes you down to Central. Then at the junction turn right onto Pitt St - over the tram lines and all the way up Pitt until you hit Park st. At Park St turn right staying in the left lane so you can cross as the pedestrians do and go into Hyde park and then onto Macquarie St. Then turn left on either Bridge or Alfred st.

Should take you only 25mins and is the best and fastest way into the city that I have tried. I will see if I can make a Bikely route and post the link.
