eBike Tours

Sydney CDB loop

After several days indoors because of heat then rain, cabin fever was setting in. Despite today’s forecast, I mounted my trusty Merida eBike and grabbed a Manly Ferry to the City. This is one of those rides you vary to suit: I had no master plan other than to ride where it is pretty and quiet, and what better way to start than sailing across Sydney Harbour.

1The earlier you go the better. On impulse, I headed south towards the Opera House then on to the Royal Botanic Gardens.



3Call it kitsch or cliché, I don’t mind, but I’ll continue photographing the House, Bridge, and Lady Macquarie’s Chair until it’s time to go.

4A short ride past the Art Gallery (with tourists waiting for doors to open), then its on to Wooloomooloo.



6After cruising down several lanes to admire the Federation architecture, I headed to Kings Cross and the El Alamain Fountain.

7From the Cross I headed towards the Sydney Showground, then Surry Hills, Redfern, and Central Railway.



From the University of Technology, it’s a short ride to the Sydney Fish Markets, Pyrmont, Bangaroo, then The Rocks.





15This ride is a gentle 32 kms in under 3 hours, on footpaths only, with many pedestrian crossings and many interesting things to see. A wonderfully safe and scenic ride indeed.
