Things To Do


Watch Planes Overhead

Pull up just as you hit airport drive and wait for a plane to come in for landing. They get real close, sometimes generating enough air current to knock you off your bike, so watch out!

Ride To The Cooks River Cycleway

About 1.8 kilometers along the cycleway there is a wide bridge that arcs over the canal towards Tempe Recreation Reserve, follow the bridge and the bike track to Holbeach Ave (it doesn’t matter which way you go, right or left, as both join up to Holbeach). Ride past the mariner pier towards the Princes Highway and cross at the lights. The Cooks River Cycleway is clearly marked and heads west towards Bicentennial Park & the Parramatta River.

If you want to head east towards Brighton-Le-Sands, ride south across the Princess Highway Bridge and follow the cycleway through Cahill Park.

Kendrick Park

Kendrick Park is nearby with a nice playground.

 

Ride To International Airport

Continue southwest along the full length of the cycleway and it passes beneath Marsh Street / Airport drive and connects to the International Airport. There’s some bike parking at the south end of the car park.

Ride To The City

Coming from the Cooks River Cycleway heading east follow the Alexandria Canal Cycleway to Coward Street then connect with Bourke Street. After riding past Mascot Station and Green Square Station take a left onto George Street and ride all the way to Prince Alfred Park.
