  • Jedda Road Stage 3 – construction of a shared path along the northern side of Jedda Road from 75 metres west of Ash Road to Weld Street, Prestons
  • Planning and design for shared path on the northern side of Newbridge Road between Heathcote Road and Rickard Road
  • Construction of off-road shared path on the southern side of Elisabeth Street between Castlereagh Street and Bathurst Street
  • Construction an off-road shared path on the western side of Speed Street from Bigge Street, then connects to Scott Street and Liverpool Station
  • Investigation and development of a new (revised) BikePlan for the LGA of Liverpool.

There are also projects for Campbelltown and Fairfield. See the full list on the Roads and Maritime Services website.

Botany Foreshore Ride

Despite grey skies, the Botany Foreshore ride attracted a keen group of riders. The ride hugs the coast and provides excellent views of Sydney Airport, the beaches of Botany Bay and the lower Georges River. The ride follows the Cooks River to Botany Bay near Sydney Airport then continues south along the foreshore past the beaches of Kyeemagh, Brighton-Le-Sands, Ramsgate and on to Sans Souci returning via the same route with a lunch stop at Brighton-LeSands.

Great Cycle Challenge


The 2015 Great Cycle Challenge starts on Thursday…

Sign up now and challenge yourself to ride next month – entry is FREE!

Great Cycle Challenge is Australia’s largest virtual cycling event that encourages all riders to get on their bikes and clock their kilometres throughout October.

All ages. All fitness levels. Any location. Just ride.

There are 7,735 riders already registered across Australia to be part of this year’s challenge – will you join them?

To learn more, view about the challenge, how it works or go to the website.

How does it work? Good question!
The idea of Great Cycle Challenge is that you set yourself a KM goal to pedal throughout October and record your rides over the month to reach your target. Your target could be to pedal 100km or 1,000km and you can ride to work, on weekends or clock your kilometres indoors on a spin bike.

You’ll get the FREE Great Cycle Challenge app to record your rides, but you can also use Strava, MayMyRide or your existing GPS device (Garmin etc). All apps will automatically sync with your personal online rider page to track your progress throughout the month.

It’s a great way to get some exercise, achieve your fitness goals and get on your bike!

We hope to see you riding this October in the 2015 Great Cycle Challenge.

Have a great day.
The Bicycle NSW Team

P.S. Register now for FREE and join the challenge today – it starts on Thursday!


Tonight’s dinner ride cancelled

The BOM is predicting a thunderstorm this evening with winds. With the already waterlogged ground we are concerned that the heavily treed areas we were going to ride through could be a little risky.

We’ll run the CBD to East Hills ride again in Spring when hopefully the weather will be kinder to riders.

Council commits to river crossing

Liverpool Council has committed to planning a pedestrian and cycleway linking Liverpool Train Station to the other side of the Georges River, using the existing historic pylons as foundations.

The announcement followed a NSW State Government promise of $273,000 to boost walking and cycling in and around Liverpool.

We welcome the announcement and look forward to the time when riders and walkers can cross the river safely and comfortably.
