Bike riding in Sydney is an economical and environmentally friendly way to navigate the city. You’ll also get to see some parts of the city you never would using other methods of transport. An easy way to do it is on a Sydney cycle tour.
The Sydney Classic Tour

Some of the best Sydney bike routes will show you fabulous harbour views, give you a glimpse of the opera house, the Botanical Gardens and Hyde Park.
There are plenty of parks if you decide to take a picnic, if not there are cafes close to bike paths.
