The festival is all about promoting bike riding and runs from Saturday 11 to 25 October. There’s bicycle art, fanciful rides, a hill climb, workshops and a spectacular night-time harbourside event.

All together, there are more than 20 events planned.

The event boasts film screenings, live music, gourmet food trucks, and even a free breakfast and coffee to celebrate Ride to Work Day (that’s on Wednesday 15 October).

That’s one of three big ‘signature events’.

Another is something called Sydney Rides the Night – an event to wrap things up on 25 October that boasts that it brings everyone together with a picture-perfect night-time ride with light installations and special effects as you roll through a 2.5 kilometre illuminated course along Mrs Macquaries Road.

Then there’s a free community event and the finish site of the Spring Cycle 15km Sydney Rides the City Ride on Sunday, 19 October. It features BMX displays and workshops, free bike-powered smoothies, face painting, cycle chic kids, balance bike track, jumping castle, a Dutch zone (with Dutch pancakes) and a helmet design zone.

Here are the key dates again but you can get the full info on the website.
