The Best Three Places for Bike Riding in Sydney

Jul 8, 2008
There is no shortage of bike riding locations, but I will talk about my favorite three of them.

The Blue Mountains is located around 60 kilometers west of Sydney city, it is a National Park and it is a beautiful destination in its own right. Now the Faulconbridge Point ride goes for about 22 kilometers, so it is not a short bike ride. You will need to get a train to Faulconbridge station, from there you get off the train and cross over the Great Western Highway and make your way to the start of the trail.

It is a dirt trail so it is much more suited to mountain biking rather than other types of bicycle rides. It is a long trail but very rewarding, it will give you some magnificent views of the Grose Vale, the Grose Road and looking down into the Grose river, which besides the name is one of the more beautiful views of the Blue Mountains.

The second bicycle riding location that I would recommend is Sydney Olympic Park. In the year 2000, Sydney hosted the Olympic Games. The Sydney Olympic Park bike ride commences actually in the Olympics circuit, so it is custom-made obviously for bicycles and it takes you past a lot of buildings and areas that we used during the Olympics.

This is still in operation today and it is a major sporting center for Sydney.

In eastern suburbs, Centennial Park in Sydney is my personal favorite location for riding bicycles. You can hire bikes anywhere around there, so if you are on vacation, there a number of spots in and around Centennial Park that you can hire a bike, depending on your age, size and disposition.

There is a dedicated bike track, so that means you are not going to be traveled by vehicles or indeed horses, joggers, or anything else. Only bike riders use that particular track.

Centennial Park is a very popular park, beautiful views and within in the middle of the suburbia and quit busy Sydney beautiful parks great spots for families, for picnics, for sporting teams, you can stop by and watch some rugby, soccer, all sports are going on.

A lot of people will ride a horse in there, but there are specific spots for riding horses so it will be no problem at all. Centennial Park is my pick for places where you can ride bikes in the city, because it is a very beautiful area. Although the blue mountains has probably got the edge in terms of natural beauty Centennial Park is very accessible, it is very easy to hire bikes there, very popular and it can be a very flat easy ride, you can go as far or as little as you like.
