Hello All,I'm getting rather tired of hearing naysayers stating that they never see any bikes on Bourke Street. Today I rode from Bondi Jungle to the Opera House and decided to make sure I did as…Continue
"I don't mind the lift - it's not a bad way to get to the northern end of the city, cos you go down the hill into Woolloomooloo, and then get the lift up. But coming home it's all wrong - getting the lift down and then having to make…"
"I also rode the Bourke Street cycleway on the weekend. I was coming up with ways to use this cycleway to commute to the CBD - one option i could see would be a Anzac Bridge type corkscrew path at the end of Wilson Street to conect to the pedestrian…"
"you know the time is now, open or not, we need to ride Bourke St on whatever bit of the cycleways is open.
Cycle Chic Sundays Sydney is going to do just that in the next few weeks - anyone interested in joining us please follow and check the blog…"
"I went for a ride on the Bourke Street cycleway on Saturday and Sunday. The parts that we did ride on were excellent and I am not sure what all the fuss is from businesses there. In fact, it would make me go to those areas more often. There were…"

"Don't forget there is a large school (SCEGGS) on the area between Taylors Square and William st. There has been an increase in the number of students riding, perhaps with a fully functioning cycleway those numbers increase again?"
"Paddington has a street style fair (well kind of) during Fashion week they get the residents to have garage sales and all the stores have sale bins out the front. It really brings in extra people to the area and creates a party type atmosphere. A…"
"to quote LateStarter
Bourke St from Phillip / Crescent to Wyndham (Bourke Rd) - nothing , become a car
back in the day I used to commute from bondi to hurstville, bourke rd/st between coward and just past phillip/cresent was a main spline. It was…"
"Nikki I doubt that there will be a street party. However, it's given me an idea, perhaps when it does finally open Sydney Cyclist should have a celebration there to show the businesses that there are lots of cyclists who do appreciate the…"
"I agree its just that originally we were being told we were getting a cycle way into the city center. It hasn't happened. A route for W'loo cyclist to get to Surry Hills and visa versa would not be high on the list of Must Haves for Cos"
I have just traded in a perfectly sensible Raleigh mountain bike for a majestic and rather crusty old Raleigh Cameo step through. Its full of rust and the back rim is kinked but it is pure, elegant riding pleasure.
