Darling Harbour  

A most appealing 10km each way ride that takes you from the Anzac Bridge in Pyrmont to the Sydney Harbour Bridge via Darling Harbour. The photos explain the obvious, its a worthwhile ride for locals and tourists.

What you have to think about is

How am I going to get there?

When is a good time to go?

Lets start with the getting there. If you were to come by train with your bike, you could get off at Wynyard, Circular Quay and Milsons Point. Town Hall could also be an option but its a bit trickier. From Wynyard Station head to Barangaroo. From Milsons Point, head up to cross the bridge on the western side and Circular Quay and carefully make your way around to the base of the bridge and you are away.

If you come by car, best parking would Glebe (see separate story) and maybe over at Milsons Point.

Now what is the best time to come? You really need to be there when everyone is not interested, so arrive early on the weekend or when its cold or raining. Otherwise you will have a good time but you will have to dodge a lot of people.

 

Naturally travel on trains and even cars is way better when its early. Forget train travel in peak time, you will need a fold-up bike.

From the Anzac Bridge right around to the end of Darling Harbour, you can ride freely on the super wide paths. Don't plan on going fast. Between Darling Harbour and Barangaroo, there is major building works. You have to negotiate about 300m of road works obstacles.

Its good fun riding around Barangaroo and when you travel onwards to the Harbour Bridge you need to ride in a cycle lane on a road. This is pretty good on the weekend as the road is very wide. During the week it will be worse.

This ride is suited to all bike styles.
