Supporting the bike boom

The past 3 years have seen huge uptake of bike riding across Sydney, with an increase in bike lanes to match. Rider numbers have grown by 57% on pre-pandemic levels, with the City of Sydney bike network growing by 25% over the same period.

“There's a bike riding boom happening in Sydney, and our Bike Buddies program will help make sure everyone's experience is a confident and safe one on Sydney's streets,” said Fiona Campbell, from the City of Sydney’s walking and cycling team.

What can you expect to learn

Whether you're new to riding, or an experienced rider looking for advice, our Bike Buddies program is here to help.

An instructor will meet you at a location convenient to you, where your bike will be safety checked.

During the 2-hour session, your instructor will teach skills and techniques for effective, safe and confident riding. You’ll practice real on-street scenarios, including lane positioning, signalling, managing intersections, braking and gear selection.

Your instructor can also help you with route selection, to pick a smooth and safe way to get around. They'll even help you work out the best route between home and work.

This free service is only available to City of Sydney residents, or people who work in the City of Sydney local area.
