It's on again for 2017! A ride through the night under the full moon from Newtown to Kiama.
We will leave Newtown at 10pm on 14 January 2017 for a ride south of just under 140km. Highlights include riding through the Royal National Park and then along the beautiful coast roads, including the sea cliff bridge, on the way down to Wollongong. From Thirroul south the ride is largely on the beach-side bicycle paths. Final stop is the beach at Kiama for a chance to swim by the world famous blow hole and grab some breakfast before jumping on the train back home.
No registration. No organisation. No rules. No official rest stops. Look after yourself, look out for others, have fun.
There will be a "no-drop" group which won't be leaving anyone behind.

BUC Sydney will be taking place Saturday 8th October 2016 at Prince Alfred Park. The challenge will start at 10am and will involve teams using Bromptons around the city to complete tasks.
You'll be asked to explore the city and interpret clues and hints. You'll record your successes by photograph and then share them with the wider world by social media or email. There will be a variety of prizes for contestants, but the most important thing will be to have fun!
Exploring, Scavenging, and Folding - the Brompton Urban Challenge has a bit of everything for you and your team.
Bikes - Bicycles other than Bromptons are welcome to join the event, but any non-Brompton riders must be accompanied by a Bromptoneer.
Teams - The Challenge is an event for teams of 3 riders. All registrations are individual, but if you wish to specify another rider or 2 that you'd like to be teamed with, you can let us know as part of the registration process. Otherwise, we'll put teams together and you'll make some new friends with fellow Bromptoneers.

- SAW Bike Tour 02-
- bicycle tour - Drifting along Sydney's formerly industrial western edge we will explore the stretch of land between Darling Harbour and Chippendale, the part of Sydney undergoing the most dramatic of changes. It is also the strip where the sharpest oppositions are playing out between memory and newness; economy and politics; inspiration and corruption opening up conversations big and small. The route and the conversation will be structured around a number of contemporary architectural and urban projects, contested sites and politically charged themes. These include recent headline projects by Frank Gehry, Jean Nouvel, Durbach Block Jaggers and DCM. However, you will also discover transformative small 'a' architecture by some of Sydney's local heroes like William Smart, CHROFI, Tonkin Zulaikha Greer, Aspect, FJMT, Silvester Fuller and others. This tour is an exploration of these gritty, rapidly changing and completely mixed up inner-city suburbs, weaving a very different narrative through Sydney.
