What we're about

Bike Leichhardt is a community group which runs regular bike rides (https://www.meetup.com/Bike-Leichhardt/pages/20328965/Maps_and_Rides) and seeks better cycling facilities in and around the Leichhardt area in Inner West Sydney. We also run weekend and multi-day tours around NSW and beyond (https://ridewithgps.com/events/51182-bike-leichhardt-rides).

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 an Easy Ride and is suitable for beginners or those returning to cycling after a break.
