Our 20km Beach Ride is perfect for riders of all abilities. This ride is all about highlighting the existing cycleways in Sydney so that riders can enjoy cycling all year round with family and friends. We aim to promote bike riding as a healthy, safe, enjoyable leisure and transport choice and we want all of our participants to regularly use the cycling infrastructure that is available to them. Our 20km Beach Ride route leads riders along a flat separated cycle path, an easy ride suitable for all ages and skill levels. The picturesque ride begins in Tempe Reserve, Tempe, the ride then follows the cycleway out onto the beach front at Kyeemagh. Riders will experience a beautiful beach ride along a shared pedestrian/cycleway path all the way to Sans Souci. From there, riders will go over the Taren Point Bridge and pedal over to a festival finish at Cronulla.
