Big Family Fun Ride

Lane Cove Council’s Bicycle Advisory Committee presents Lane Cove's 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! 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.

After you finish your chosen route, all riders will have the opportunity to participate in a cycle skills course and helmet decoration competition organised and run by Pedal-Set-Go.

A children’s cycle skills course, a riding obstacle course, helmet decoration competition, a 'selfie photo' frame opportunity and bike maintenance workshop will run continuously while the Longueville Road Loop ride is taking place.

Please note this event will go ahead in rain or shine.
