Iconic Cycling Events Around Sydney

sydney harbour

There are some fantastic cycling events in Sydney to suit the whole family.

You’ll find some great Sydney bike rides that are based within the city itself, like the chance to ride over the Sydney Harbour Bridge (minus the cars) with the Spring Cycle,  the challenging Bobbin Head Cycle Challenge, the challenging Sydney CC Ride for a Reason and a ride for women with Gear up Girl Sydney.

Starting from Sydney and finishing at different points, you’ll find 1 day rides like the MS Sydney to the Gong to Wollongong, the Go for Broke Bike Ride to the Hunter Valley and the Bondi 2 Berry Ride.

Multiday rides from Sydney include Sydney to the Hunter Cycling Classic, the Sydney to Surfers Robbo’s Ride, the Signature Tour through regional NSW and Victoria, the 10 day Red Shield Ride, the Big Push Charity Ride to Canberra, the challenging Sydney 2 Camberra and the Bike Ride for Brain Cancer to the Hunter Valley.

If you feel like bike riding within a 200km radius of Sydney, you’ll find the Bowral Classic, the Loop Charity Cycle Challenge around Lake Illawarra, and the Mailrun Charity Bike Ride at Singleton.

You can also have a look and see if any of the local bike clubs have any group rides on offer. And don’t forget to have a look at all the other attractions that Sydney has on offer.

So have a look at our online cycling event calendar, and see if you can find some Brisbane cycling events to suit!
