Big Family Fun Ride

Spring is in the air and with it is the time to enjoy
cycling with the whole family at The Big Family Fun Ride! All routes will be on
shared user paths, off-road where possible and away from busy streets. There
will also be multiple skills level courses to choose from, a sausage sizzle,
face painting, activities and live music. After you finish your chosen route,
all riders will have the opportunity to participate in a cycle skills course
organised and run by Sydney Bike Skills.
Celebrate cycling in Lane Cove by joining us on one of three local rides:
- 2.3 km Beginners’ Route for younger and less accomplished cyclists
- 4.9 km Intermediate Route to suit cyclists who are comfortable with a few hills
- An 11.6 km Accomplished Riders’ Route which is more challenging
All routes will be largely on Shared User Paths, off-road and away from busy streets. We will conclude at Blackman Park for a free sausage sizzle, face painting and activities.

More about Cycling in Lane Cove
Cycle to work, cycle to school, cycle to do your shopping, cycle to visit friends or just cycle for relaxation. Whatever your reasons, help remove traffic from our roads by riding your bike using Lane Cove's cycleways.
Why not take your children to the cycle path that has been constructed in Blackman Park? You will find it at the western end of the carpark, right next to the beautiful Lane Cove River. It's a great place for the children to learn the road rules and it's safe! Or how about cycling to either Greenwich Wharf or Longueville Wharf and enjoying the scenic beauty of Sydney Harbour on the way to and from work. Just taking the bicycle out for a leisurely ride on a Saturday or Sunday isn’t the only thing to consider. How about using Lane Cove’s great recreational facilities. Cunninghams Reach and Aquatic Park are all accessible using Lane Cove’s bicycle tracks. Bicycle racks are provided to safely secure your bike.
Cycling need not be a pastime for the individual. It can be a fun day for the whole family.
Cycleways – the way to fun destinations in Lane Cove
Over the past few years Council has developed, and continues to develop a system of cycleways which, when complete will link Lane Cove to the City and Chatswood. There are currently many local bicycle routes, these have been selected on the basis of their suitability and then sign posted to make riding easier and safer.
Cycleways – fun, but remember safety
Cycling is fun, but always remember to wear a helmet and give way to pedestrians on a shared cycleway. Children under 12 are permitted to ride on the footpaths, as are adults accompanying them. Make sure you get to know the Bicycle Road Rules.
Cycleways – good for your health, good for the environment
Cycling is not only a healthy and economical means of commuting, but it is your way of helping our environment. The more people that cycle to work, to the shops or to their friends’ house, the less exhaust fumes in your local area.
