Bicycle NSW, Western Sydney Cycling Network and CAMWEST are teaming together for the inaugural WSYD Gear Up Girl Social Ride.

Please note that this is an event focused on encouraging and empowering women of all ages and abilities to get involved in cycling.. Whether you are a seasoned rider or just starting out, this ride is the perfect opportunity to develop your skills, connect with other women, and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Western Sydney.

There are two start locations for this event - Rooty Hill Railway Station and Adams Park, Canley Vale.  Riders from both start locations ride 15-16km and converge at Prospect Reservoir for a light lunch.

Both rides are slow-paced, and apart from a few road crossings, almost exclusively on shared-path.  Riders from the Rooty Hill start will encounter a few more hills than those starting from Canley Vale.

From the reservoir, riders have the option of making their own way home (either riding or arranging for someone to drive to Prospect Reservoir to collect them), or joining the lead ride back to Guildford Railway Station.  Note that the ride to Guildford Station is an additional 10km and will be done at a slow pace.  If going back to the Rooty Hill start from Guildford, two trains can be taken with a change at Granville.

The meeting point for the Rooty Hill start is in North Parade, Rooty Hill, beside the Rooty Hill station lift at 10am.  If driving to the Rooty Hill start site, there is both ground-level parking and parking in a multi-storey carpark available.  Entrances to both carparks run off opposite sides of Station Street.

The Canley Vale start site is a short ride from Canley Vale station.

Please register to ride from either start site at Western Sydney Gear Up Girl Social Ride Tickets, Sat, Mar 4, 2023 at 10:00 AM | Eventbrite.


Cycling can be an enjoyable and exciting activity. However, like many recreational activities that require physical exertion, cycling carries with it the risk of physical injury. The risks associated with cycling include the risk that:

  • you may be involved in a collision with people, animals, objects and/or vehicles;
  • you may lose your balance;
  • you may suffer from the effects of heat, cold, wind, rain and other weather conditions;
  • you may suffer from physical exertion;
  • you may become separated from the cycling group; and
  • you may fall from your bicycle.

These risks may result in death, bodily injury, disability, property damage and economic loss. There are other risks to which you may be exposed. You should ensure that you wear appropriate clothing and safety equipment, including a helmet.

By participating in the cycling activities provided by the organising Bicycle NSW Affiliated Bicycle User Group, you agree:

  • to obey all Australian and NSW road rules;

It is also recommended you bring money for food and/or fares and your mobile phone.

Children – these rides are not a child minding service. Every rider under the age of 18 must be under the direct supervision of a parent/guardian. The parent/guardian must watch and control their children for the duration of the ride. The parent/guardian agrees to take full and sole responsibility for their children’s safety. Please contact the Ride Leader in advance to discuss the suitability of a ride for your children.
