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.
