Traffic & Transport
The best way to get to and from the event is by train.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and contact tracing NSW Health and Transport for NSW cannot provide free transport for riders and volunteers on the event day. If using public transport, all riders and volunteers of Spring Cycle must tap on and off using their opal card, as normal.
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.

The 10km and 50km Start Zone.
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.
Getting there by Car.
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.
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.
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.
