Statement by Bicycle NSW (https://bicyclensw.org.au/covid-19-whats-next/)


Bike Leichhardt is a community group which runs regular bike rides and seeks better cycling facilities in and around the Leichhardt area in Inner West Sydney. We also organize weekend and multi-day tours around NSW and beyond.

Bike Leichhardt warmly welcomes new riders on our rides. We cater for all fitness levels and interests with rides ranging from 20-30 km for beginners to longer and more challenging rides of 50-100 km, to a variety of destinations. Something for everyone! The first Sunday of each month is generally an Easy Ride and is suitable for beginners or those returning to cycling after a break.

All our rides are free, however we kindly request that, if you like riding with us, you become a Paid-Up/Financial Member after a couple of rides with Bike Leichhardt.

Parramatta Escarpment Boardwalk

Bar Italia

Cycle out to Parramatta to check out the new escarpment boardwalk opposite the ferry terminal.

We start at Bar Italia, out through Five Dock, Concord West, The Armory, over Silverwater bridge then on to Parramatta.

At Parramatta, the option is to take the ferry back (numbers may be limited, the tide affects services) or the train, or cycle back. I will
cycle back, taking a vote on the most preferred route. Please note if time is pressing, the train might be your best option.

We will have coffee at the cafe at the wharf.

The ride will be at a medium/easy pace, but you should have cycling experience and be comfortable riding for a few hours.

Bring water, sunscreen, spare tube. Some of the cycling is on quiet streets, some streets with a bit of traffic, and some on dedicated paths.

The escarpment walk is heavily used by pesedstrians.

Covid strategies please.
