Where have we raced our bikes in Sydney? Lots of places. Cycling was the workingman’s way to travel long distances before mass production of the motor car. The bike was ridden everywhere (if someone tells you that Sydney’s ‘too hilly’ for bikes just laugh – they have no idea what’s possible on a bike) and inevitably raced.
It’s a work in progress, but here goes….
Crit circuits and velodromes in the Hurstville area: Oatley Park, Olds Park, Hurstville Oval(velodrome), Kempt Field and Railway Parade (velodrome)
Crit circuits in the Sutherland area: Waratah Park
Crit circuits and velodromes in the Eastern Suburbs: Riley Street (velodrome), Heffron Park, Coogee and Bondi Beach
Western and Inner Western Sydney Crit circuits and velodromes: Merrylands Oval (velodrome), Canterbury (old Riley Street velodrome, moved), Tempe (or Canterbury velodrome), Wiley Park (velodrome), Bass Hill (crit track and velodrome), Camperdown (velodrome), Blacktown crit track, Lidcombe Oval (velodrome), Lansdowne, Henson Park (velodrome)
As always, more soon…
