- Sat Oct 06 - Sat Oct 27 2018
The City of Sydney’s annual four-week festival – Sydney Rides Festival is on again from 6 to 27 October – boasts more than 30 events that celebrate bikes and family fun in the outdoors.
With a big adventure in Sydney Park, a twilight picnic ride and a chocolate ride, to name a few, this year’s Sydney Rides Festival in October has more in store for Sydneysiders than ever before. Sydney Rides Festival 2018 highlights include:
The Big Adventure: Pedal, jump, dance or climb at this celebration of the outdoors and active living.

Action-packed adventures include mountain boarding, parkour, breakdancing, rock-climbing and footy clinics. Feel the breeze at the kite flying field or take some time out in a yoga class.
