Discover foodie secrets on free bike tours

Discover foodie secrets on free bike tours

Sydney’s best-kept foodie secrets will be revealed on a series of free discovery bike rides organised this month by the City of Sydney.

Trained guides will take both experienced and new riders on tours of markets, family picnic places and hidden specialty food stores across the inner city.

Lord Mayor Clover Moore said the tours were a great opportunity to explore the city and discover its hidden nooks and crannies in a new way.

“Our discovery rides are the perfect opportunity to make the most of summer, get active and explore some of the incredible food stores our city has to offer,” the Lord Mayor said.

“Sydney has a smorgasbord of amazing eateries from buzzing markets to fine dining and the discovery rides are the perfect opportunity to get out and explore our best local businesses on our safe and easy bike routes.”

The rides follow the successful Sydney Rides Festival, when more than 20,000 people celebrated all things two wheeled throughout October.

The rides will take place the last two weekends of November and explore one of three different themes: family routes, city markets and food spots.

The family ride focusses on Centennial Park. The markets ride explores Zetland, Paddington and Darlinghurst. And the almost calorie-neutral foodie ride explores the back streets and bikeways of Alexandria.
