I'm a writer living in Newtown Sydney. I love travel, coffee, sweet indulgence and finding new things to do with with my husband, son and crazy dog. Check out my blog at lastboardingcallforgate77.wordpress.com for more.
Bikes, Lights, Action
Grab your bike and celebrate Sydney Rides Festival with a night of light, food and entertainment harbourside. Mrs Macquaries Road will close to cars from 6pm and will be open for people to walk or cycle past light installations and dreamy special effects.

Kids will delight in the magical rainbow path, tunnel of light, a field of beams and other installations along the 2.5km loop.
You can get your groove on at the Glitter Ball Arena, dance like it's 999 at the silent disco or channel your inner 80's child and challenge your friends on the roller racing stage. If that all sounds too hectic just kick back and chill out with a bite to eat from the food trucks.
If you love to show off, pimp your bike with bling for this wonderful night of bikes, lights and music.
Light the City is a family-friendly event. Getting to Light the City
If you can't ride all the way to Light the City, why not take your bike on the train? Martin Place and St James stations are a short ride or a 10-minute walk from Mrs Macquaries Road. Visit transportnsw.info/trip to plan your journey.
Come by bike and use the Sydney Cycling map to plan your cycling route. Download or request a form at cycleways.sydney. Or try our Facebook messenger chatbot to discover the best way to ride.
Remember that you can ride on the footpath with children under 16 years old.
