Event: -
50 years since man stepped onto the moon
Fifty years since Man landed on the moon? Can't be, but it is! To celebrate this auspicious occasion, you are invited to take part in Sydney's city-wide achievement by taking to the streets on your bike and collectively cycle the 384,400 kilometres to the moon.

You can get involved in several different ways as there are numerous organised rides or some people are donating the kilometres from their daily bike travel to work or the gym. If you would like a loony lunar expedition, you can visit art installation Fly Me to the Moon at the World Square and have fun peddling on the wild "flying bike" sculpture Lunar Velocipede. This sculpture was created by Arts Company Erth Visual & Physical.

A festival moon map is available for you to collect stamps on your lunar passport. This map can be collected at the World Square.

In 1969, humans landed on the moon, perhaps in the next fifty years, we will actually be cycling around the moon, as many people make the exit from Earth to start a new life there.
