Cycling in Sydney Australia
This morning my Little Mate and I went to Marrickville Metro to stock up on groceries for the holiday period. I crammed an overloaded shopping trolleys worth of groceries into the Cabby (using the cargo bit on the front and the back rack). On the way home I put my foot down to go uphill over the railway tracks and I snapped my…Continue
No bike. Because I walked here. Otherwise I’ll be rushing past (hint).
Yes, I guess I was being over optimistic expecting to see anyone on the road yesterday morning.
Still, I confirmed previous research into my theory that cycling on Christmas morning is unpopular because all the coffee shops are closed. (Well, the ones on the north side, certainly. Nick and Nomes seem to be trying to disprove my theory on the…Continue
Enjoyed a lovely quiet ride to La Perouse along to Watson's Bay with Nick and Adrian this morning followed by a tasty coffee at Hernandez (it never closes!). Perfect way to start Christmas if you ask me!
Hope you all have a lovely day and maybe even get some fun riding in this festive…Continue
Last weekend my son and I did some riding in the beautiful bush of the Blue Mountains National Park. The short story is that we rode the Andersons fire trail on Saturday and the Oaks fire trail on Sunday.
The slightly longer story is:
* On Saturday we caught the train from Sydney to Wentworth Falls,
* rode out along Tablelands Rd to McMahon's Lookout overlooking Lake Burragorang (the bit of water behind Warragamba Dam)
* rode back up Tablelands Rd and…Continue
Merry Christmas all at Sydney Cyclist.
Home you all have a happy and safe festive season with some great riding.
This is Georgie, my daughter's dog. He also, if a bit reluctantly, wishes you all a Merry Christmas.
"If I saw this on my car, I’d definitely try to be more cautious of cyclists while driving. Well, unless that stupid cyclist was a complete tool bag that was hogging up the entire road. There’s a friggin’ bike lane for a reason you idiot! Then, it’d just infuriate me."
Check out some of those…Continue
I had no idea that I had a blog page at Sydney Cyclist until I happened to run across it today via a Google search that turned up some messages back and forth from last year.
Well, since you have given me this forum, let me encourage you to have a look at the new, much improved MOMENTUM magazine website at:…Continue

The other day, when leaving work at some ridiculously late hour, I got about a hundred metres down the road and realised that I had a puncture. I was riding the Peugeot, and it has brand new tyres on it. 'Bombproof' is how they were described by the shop. Well, either I have a problem with those rims or Panaracer tyres are not all they are cracked up to be; I've done nearly…Continue
Daisy was delivered on Friday at Universe Cycles- the amount of effort Gary put into getting things just right was fantastic. Photos will be posted as soon as I work out how to get them from Mr Jen's new camera.
Daisy is a new (but old- Universe have some lovely brand new old bikes and frames are new in the box) lemon coloured Apollo step through frame, but with the new Shimano 11 Alfine hub fitted.
She wanted to get out into it straight away so we headed off to…Continue
It's funny what motivates a ride sometimes.
Today I noticed a listing of a "Lane Cove to North Head loop" under SC's "Latest Bikely Routes" . As is too often the case with Bikely routes it seemed to take busy roads much of the way. (Why do people bother? -- like, as if we didn't know a main road will get you there?).
It does remind me, though, that I had told myself I should ride to North Head and get some photographs one day. Of course, the time I needed to go…Continue
Morning, How is everyone enjoying Clover Moore's Kent Street Cycle Way through the city?
