Meet at 8.30 for 8.45am departure in the car park at Tempe Station. Please note: There will be track work on the day, so if you're catching the train to the start, you'll need to go to Wolli Creek Station and then cycle back to Tempe (one station away) along the footpath of the Princes Highway and then left through Kendrick Park. (You can catch the train from Central to Wolli Creek via the airport.) From Tempe we'll follow cycle paths to join the recently completed M5 path, then continue to Revesby for coffee. Some busier roads around Revesby on the return, or you can catch the train back. At 43kms return, this is a medium ride. Your bike must be fully functional and a helmet is compulsory. When you register to attend, please sms your mobile number and emergency contact numbers to Natalie on[masked]. Please do not join the ride if you are not well on the day. In the likelihood of returning by train, please bring a face mask and Opal card.

Sunday 23 August is to be a “Safe Cycling Day” and Sydney Safe Cycling and Bicycle NSW are asking riders to pin a special message “bib” onto the back of their jerseys, displaying the safe passing distance for vehicles. We are hoping that if enough riders wear these bright bibs on that same day, car drivers will be made more aware of the rule to keep us safe. We will have a ride on that day and it would be great if all their riders wear the bib. The bibs are only $5 each, including safety pins, plus postage (or you can collect at a Mosman address). You can order them at: https://sydneysafecycling.godaddysites.com/ To choose one of the bibs that is most appropriate for you, click on “SHOP” on the top left of the page, then click on the bib you’d like. The bib will display accurately at this step. Then just check out to pay.
