One of the good things about the current lockdown regulations is the dramatically reduced road traffic, providing recreational cyclists with more opportunities to explore and exercise on their bikes. The Spit Bridge to Sydney Harbour Bridge route is usually too busy to enjoy but it is currently a quiet and safe ride.
This ride started in Seaforth, with spectacular views from the northern side of The Spit.
A short descent on a back street and you arrive at the lovely Spit Reserve.
From there, it’s about 20 minutes via quiet local footpaths before you arrive at Bradman Park in North Sydney.
Normally bustling with cars and pedestrians, North Sydney felt deserted which made it an easy ride down to McMahon’s Point, past Council Chambers and local churches.
I took the Lavender Bay to Luna Park walkway, which comes out under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. From there, you can pick any number of back roads to the Northern Beaches or wherever you started.
This ride was just under 40 kms and took two and a half hours. The following four minute GoPro video shares some of the ride highlights, and the Strava link below shows the route outlinę.
