Cycling in Sydney Australia
I'm asking a favour, if you've been to the Sydney Tweed Rides or even just enjoyed seeing the photos would you mind taking a moment to nominate it in the Australian Bicycling Acheivement Awards (some of you may remember Damian won for this very site a few years back).
The category the Tweed Ride seems to fit in best is

A few statistics about the Sydney Tweed Ride - 2011 saw the third ride with numbers approximately doubling each year from 75 riders to 180 to around 300 to 400 plus people this year.
It is possibly one of the biggest social rides in the Southern hemisphere! Media coverage has included local and international websites and blogs, many Sydney radio shows, newspapers, magazines and we even made the news this year on 2 different commercial channels!
Thanks for your support!
