Plan your route

The best way by bike is not always obvious. Don’t assume you will ride the same way you drive. There’s an abundance of laneways, hidden connections and cycle friendly streets you never knew existed. Our Sydney cycling map and personalised route finding service will help you find a more enjoyable way.

You can also use our Facebook messenger service which provides instant results for your trip. Open messenger now and tap get started.

Riding to work

Arrive at work with a clear head and feeling energised. Riding a bike to work can be faster and more convenient than public transport or a car, and it’s an easy way to stay fit. Get the tools you need to get started. The Sydney Bike Commuter Facebook group is good place to ask questions to existing riders and find a riding buddy.

Riding etiquette

Friendly waves, eye contact, using your bell, clear signalling and stopping at red lights will improve your public relations and make for a smooth, enjoyable journey.
