    There is a street ride scheduled on Sunday 11th of October, starting at Cook and Phillip park in the city.

    There are people coming from a few different places so we'll aim to meet at 10:30-11am or so to give enough travel time.

    Everyone welcome. Please post if you plan to come along.

    Hey Mitch, sucks that you'll be away! Thanks for helping spread the word on Facebook.

    Si/Mitch - where do you reckon is the best place to park? The Domain? Given it's Sunday I think you can prebook and get a good rate.

    Hey Alex, parking in the Domain is $10/day flat rate on the weekend.

    Might even get a bike for this ride...

    As someone not to familiar with sydney. How far will we end up riding away from the cars?

    Just incase any spares are needed etc.
    I honestly have no idea of the location and were the ride will be happening.

    Hi Allan, hopefully this map will help you. I have no idea how far we will venture from this area but there'll be a few of us in the same situation I'm guessing so don't be too worried about getting lost.

    Damo, hope you can rustle something together and come along :)

    If you take a backpack with some tools, tubes etc you should be alright - there is a lot of stuff within riding distance

    Does anyone know what security will be like around the areas were going?

    I've been on a few street rides in the past with group of guys and they tend to kick everyone out before everyone gets keen.

    I'm keen... I used to ride trails obsessively in the UK about 12 years ago. I've been in sydney for 8 years now and not been back on a bike until the other week when i bought a run of the mill Giant. Put some rigid forks on last week, and i'm ready to go. See you then. Tom
