Free Breakfast For The City's Cyclists

Sydney cyclists are invited to a free breakfast tomorrow Wednesday 14 October from 7am 9am at Hyde Park South as part of Ride to Work Day celebrations.

The City of Sydney breakfast will also feature free bike checks, competitions, giveaways and even free health checks.

Lord Mayor Clover Moore MP said the event recognises the thousands of cyclists who ride into the City centre each day.

"Cycling reduces road congestion and pollution, cuts emissions and improves public health," said Ms Moore.

"This breakfast is a small way of saying thank you to cyclists for doing their part in reducing Sydney's traffic congestion and helping the environment."

As part of the City's Sustainable Sydney 2030 plan, the City has allocated $76 million over the next four years to build an extensive cycleway network as part of a plan to increase cycling by 500 per cent by 2017.

Work is currently underway on a separated cycleway along Bourke Street in Surry Hills.

Construction will also commence shortly on Union Street in Pyrmont and Bourke Road in Alexandria - important links in the cycleway network.

"This cycleway network is about providing Sydneysiders with a safe, convenient, healthy and sustainable transport option," Ms Moore added.
