On yer bike.

If you've been hankering to get on your bike, but Sydney traffic has been freaking you out, there's now no excuse. The 2015 Sydney Rides Festival has rolled up. For three magnificent, two-wheeling weeks, there are more reasons to ride than you can poke a spoke at — from pedal-stroke yoga sessions and bike-inspired film nights to lessons in how to cycle in style and roller racing competitions.

On Saturday, October 10, head to St Peters' Sydney Park for Sydney Rides the Park. There'll be bicycle-dedicated markets, a BMX arena, a mountain boarding slope, a bike-powered juice lounge, food trucks and more. Then, on Tuesday, October 20, the chairman of Denmark's Cycling Embassy, Marianne Wienreich, will be speaking at Customs House about how we can "Copenhagenise" Sydney (i.e. turn it into a place where half of all commuters travel by bike).

And the finale will be happening on Saturday, October 31. Dubbed Light the City, it's a nocturnal event that will transform Mrs Macquaries Road into a 2.5 kilometre, illuminated, car-free cycle route. Come dressed in your Halloween-inspired finest for a chance to win some serious prizes, including a $1,000 voucher at a local bike store.
