GETTING THERE BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT
The best way to get to and from the event is by train, plus travel is covered by your ride entry. Thanks to our partners, Transport for NSW, travel on some public transport services is covered for 2019 Spring Cycle participants and volunteers.
PLEASE NOTE: for public safety, bikes aren’t permitted on-board buses and transport staff may refuse bikes on board ferries and light rail services if there is not enough room to safely stow your bike.
● If you’re travelling with your bicycle, travel on Sydney Trains* or Sydney Metro services is covered by your ride entry.
● If you’re a volunteer or participant travelling without a bike, travel on Sydney Trains*, Sydney Metro, buses, ferries and light rail is covered by your entry or volunteer travel pass.
* Sydney Trains network bounded by Bomaderry, Goulburn, Bathurst, Scone and Dungog stations.

The closest train station to St Leonards Park is North Sydney on the T1 North Shore Line. Trains to North Sydney run every 10 minutes from as early as 4am. Take the Blue St exit and turn left from the station then head right onto Miller St and then straight up the hill to the start area. A team of volunteers will be on site to help guide you as well.
Please note: If you're taking part in the 105km ride and travelling from stations west of Strathfield, buses replace trains between Granville and Strathfield until 6am on Sunday morning for overnight Sydney Trains trackwork. Participants will need to change for a rail replacement bus to continue their trip to North Sydney by train. Bus drivers will practice discretion for participants travelling with their bikes.

GETTING THERE BY CAR
We strongly encourage participants to leave the car at home and catch public transport as parking is limited. Roads around the start and finish areas will also be closed, see below for more details on closure locations and times.
Special event clearway parking restrictions will also be in place between 3am and 11am on key roads in North Sydney, the Sydney CBD and Pyrmont.
Clearways are strict no-parking zones, and apply even to local residents and RMS Mobility Scheme Permit holders. Vehicles left in clearways will be towed and a fee applies so check signs carefully. If your vehicle is towed, call 132 701 to find its new location.
