Uses harbour bridge cycle route and shared user path on Cahill Walk.(great views). Uses cycle route on eastern edge of the CBD to Centennial Park, Loop Grand Drive at Centennial Park then cycle through the elegant streets of Paddington to Rushcutters Bay. Head back to the city via Potts Point & Woolloomooloo. Optional loop of Mrs Macquarie chair. Return to North Sydney via Circular Quay and the Rocks. Coffee stop either Centennial Park, Paddington or Rushcutters Bay Park.

Notes: This is a delightful romp through many of the city's green spaces. It has some spectacular views (the Quay, the Opera House, etc) and a lovely loop through Centennial Park. We glide down some charming, quiet backstreets in Paddington, admiring the cottages and terraces. Mainly, it is relatively flat but it does have some big climbs, which we will take at an easy pace and wait for everyone to do in their own time. E-bikes welcome (in fact, you may appreciate them on those few hills) however be warned there are two sets of stairs we have to carry our bikes up, one with 50 steps. Mostly we are on bike paths but you also need to be confident occasionally riding in live traffic.

Pre-registration is required through the Bike North website link
