Cycle Speed Dating

Saturday 14 October - 2pm (32-45 year age group) 5pm (23-35 year age group), activation space.

Forget swiping right and join Bicycle NSW on the 14th of October for Cycle Speed Dating. Yes, you read this right, this is speed dating on bikes.

Cycle Speed Dating is organised by and for cyclists and started in London in 2013. The events where you get to meet others who like bicycles and cycling in an offline, relaxed environment, have been major successes in London and Queenstown. Now, Sydneysiders will have the chance to experience one of these events.

Join the ride through Sydney Olympic Park to find out for yourself. After the ride you tell us who you would like to see again and a few days later we will send you through your matches.

We have two events running. One event is aimed at people aged 23 to 35. Our other event is aimed at 32 to 45. Men get to date women and women get to date men. We know that love has no labels, age is just a number and that we refer to ‘men’ and ‘women’ although there are many other shades of gender identity as well as orientation. Interested in a men only, women only or bi-cycle speed dating? Different age range? Email us at to register your interest in these events and we can hopefully help you in the future.

FAQ’s for Cycle Speed Dating

Do I need to purchase my ticket in advance?
Yes, please do buy your ticket in advance, we want to get the balance right between the number of men and women so please book your ticket as soon as possible.

Can I bring a friend?
It’s great to go on a speed dating session with a group of friends. You will surely make some memories! Everyone attending the event needs to hold a ticket.

I bought a ticket, now what?
Please wait for an email confirmation. We’ll send you an email with all details a few days before the event.

Can I attend on my own?
Yes, this is the place to meet like-minded people and maybe even a very special person. If you’re coming on your own then please don’t be scared as there will be awesome souls around this evening. We’re in it together.

It’s my first time, what’s a speed date like?
A speed date is a short date. This way you can meet several people with similar interests in one evening. The dates last three to four minutes, which is often enough to find out if you would like to see someone again.

What happens if I like someone during the event?
Everyone attending the event will receive a piece of paper on which you can let us know if you would like to meet someone again. After the event we will email you to let you know if there was a match. A match is when you both want to see each other again. And of course, if you want, you can tell someone you like him/her during the event!

Does age matter?
Age is just a number, but based on experiences and feedback, we have decided to organise events for different age groups. This is not set in stone though. Email us at if you’re unsure.

What do I wear?
Come as you are.

What does my ticket include?
Your ticket includes one free drink, the professional hosting at the Spring Financial Group Spring Cycle Weekend during the event and an email afterwards with your matches.

I find it hard to start a conversation with a stranger, help?
We have chosen a wonderful location for the event which will make you feel at ease. And don’t forget you probably have three things in common to start with: you’re a cyclist, a Sydneysider and you’re single!
