Thread: (Sydney) City Night Ride?

  1. #1

    Default (Sydney) City Night Ride?

    What has happened to the Sydney City Night Rides over the last 10 or so years? Is there a popular facebook group for regular (mtb) street rides?
    All I seem to find is hipsters on single speeds and lycra's going for rides.
    NSW watering hole hasn't had any rides for literally months....

    Just bought myself a new HT 100mm bike for some street riding, gaps, stairs etc.
    Send me a PM if anyone is interested in getting together for a quick ride in the city area.

    Have you seen the bridge nothing side stair climb challenge group?

    There was some street ride talk on here a while back and a few interested Sydney peeps. Down this way:

    And I think this is what brought us undone last time...in the hospitality world "must be available weekends" is a common thing.

    A Friday night should be workable though. And that damn wedge still begs for it.

    Last street ride I did in Syd was circa 2005.

    Walking down the street and seeing a bunch of dudes on MTBs was how I found out about this website back in 03/04.

    Fridays a goer. I work in alexandria so riding up from there after work is ideal.

    I'd be down for a Friday ride Ultra Lord.
    New bike should be ready for me to pick up on Wednesday.
    I work nights butmy weekend starts at 6am on Friday morning. So a good sleep and will be ready to go by the arvo.
    Shoot me a PM. I live just over in Erskineville right now. Have barely been on a push bike in 10 years so will have to take it a bit easy though. Fitness will be well down.

    Luke.
