Rules & Safety
For your safety.
To ensure that you and your fellow riders have an enjoyable and safe Spring Cycle, please adopt safe courteous riding at all times by following these basic principles:
Please note: Under normal traffic conditions it is illegal for bicycles to ride on the lanes of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Cahill Expressway and the Western Distributor – penalties apply. Cycleways are on the western side of the Sydney Harbour Bridge (from Milsons Point to The Rocks) and the eastern side of Cockle Bay (from King Street to Pyrmont Bridge).
Other things to keep in mind.
Keep up and Keep Pedaling.
While we encourage you to have a break at the Rest Stops and soak up the amazing scenes of Sydney and local atmosphere, please remember that the route and rest stops for the Spring Cycle will only remain open for specific time durations. After this time, the route and roads will be progressively returned to regular road conditions. Please follow instructions of any official event personnel when you are asked to move along the route.
Can't Make the Distance?
It should be noted that if you are unable to meet the route closure times or need to depart the designated event route at any time, you do so as a solo, unaccompanied cyclist under regular road conditions without any event support. Should this occur, you are no longer a participant in the event and we ask that you remove your official Rider Number.
We do provide a Sweep Bus with bike trailer for those who are unable to keep up or pedal to the finish. The Sweep Bus will drop you and your bicycle to the nearest rest stop, finish site or train station so that you can make independent transport arrangements back home or to the finish line.
