Sydney: Cycling - Mountain Biking
The Cultural Hub of Australia's East Coast
With stunning beaches and the Blues Mountains nearby, Sydney is a cycling and Mountain Biking paradise with its unspoilt terrains, breathtaking views and astounding array of beautiful parks and beaches waiting around every corner. However, Sydney’s steep hills, narrow streets and high volumes of traffic mean that beginners would be best heading out into the less demanding parks and or cycle paths near Bondi and Manly. Note that cycling is prohibited in Darling Harbour and Martin Place. Maps with clearly marked cycle routes are readily available in Sydney and will help navigate you safely round the city. If you fancy some company, join one of the many guided cycle tours at Circular Quay and meet fellow visitors as you explore Sydney. There are plenty of bicycle hire shops to be found along Clarence St with a choice of mountain bikes, tandems, hybrid bikes, tag a longs and baby carriages. Sydney is a safe and largely hassle-free destination when it comes to a cycling or mountain biking holiday and is ideal for the whole family.
