Spring Cycle 2014

Cyclists took to the roads of Sydney last Sunday, cycling over the Sydney Harbour Bridge, as they took part in the annual Spring Cycle.

The Spring Cycle is Sydney’s largest recreational bike ride event, this year bringing in approximately 9,000-10,000 participants.

Sophie Bartho, a spokeswoman for the event organisers, Bicycle NSW, said “It truly was a celebration of cycling and community showing people the joy of riding a bicycle in Sydney.”

The all ages event, which ran over 3 courses (15km / 55km / 100km), celebrated its 30th birthday by highlighting the benefits of cycling and encouraging families to get outside and enjoy the picturesque city streets. The cycle event also raises money for TAD Disability Services Freedom Wheels, a group that customises bikes for children with disabilities.
