Whites Creek Lane and Sydney Park Loop

On a really nice Saturday in January, I headed off to try and find a workable easy way to connect the wonderful Whites Creek Lane bike path in Annandale with the equally wonderful Sydney Park in Erskinville. That meant I would have to ride down to Pyrmont and head over the Anzac bridge and then loop around through Annandale and Stanmore to get to Sydney Park. It was a good ride as the pictures show and I knew it would be best on a Sunday morning when there are no cars around.  So the very next day, I took my wife in the opposite direction (clockwise) by first heading through Stanmore. I a ..read more

They say that Sydney is not so great for cycling and one of the areas where this rule of thumb applies is the area around Kogarah Bay and Hurstville. As I love the cycling around Oatley and along Botany Bay so much, I have gone over the maps many times and ventured into the area like an early explorer a few times. Finally, thanks to power of the eBike I think I have discovered a way through that would do for the hardy souls that want to venture across. Here is the trail on our Google Maps in green on the east side of the highway and black for the hilly and roady trail on the western side of th ..read more
