Get on your bike and ride in the 2017 NSW Spring Cycle

10 OCTOBER 2017

Roads and Maritime Services is again proudly sponsoring Sydney’s premier cycling event, the Spring Cycle led by Bicycle NSW.

Head of Network Sydney Steven Head said Roads and Maritime started supporting the event in 2015 to help encourage people to take up cycling as a fun and healthy transport option.

“The Spring Cycle presents an annual opportunity to cycle on and along some of Sydney’s most beautiful and iconic landmarks including the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Olympic Park, Parramatta River and Western Sydney Parklands,” Mr Head said.

“Whether you’re riding the 10 kilometre Sydney City Ride, 16 kilometre River Ride, 50 kilometre Classic Ride or the 105 kilometre Challenge Ride it’s a great event for the young and old to get involved in.

“This year the event will be held on Sunday 15 October starting from North Sydney and Parramatta.

“Whether you’re a beginner, a recreational cyclist or ride like the wind it’s a fun event and has distances to suit cyclists of all abilities.”

Bicycle NSW CEO Craig Meagher said the event was a family-friendly way of encouraging cycling as a healthy, easy, low cost and environmentally friendly way of getting around.

“The Spring Financial Group Spring Cycle highlights what cycling is all about – at any age or any ability, it can be for you,” Mr Meagher said.

“It's all about encouraging people to get out and enjoy the great outdoors.

“Sydney has come a long way in recent years to develop its cycling infrastructure and Spring Cycle showcases this."

Mr Head said the NSW Government has taken unprecedented steps to improve cyclist safety and accessibility to cycleways.

“In the past financial year Roads and Maritime managed 39.4 kilometres of additional cycling infrastructure across the state,” Mr Head said.

“More than 185 active transport program projects including 79 specifically for cycling were carried out across NSW in partnership with 99 councils which received funding for projects. This included funding towards planning, design and construction of projects.”
