Our talented friend  Garry Weicks penned a tribute to cycling in Sydney inspired by Max Ehrmann’s much loved  Desiderata.  It caught the eye of Australian Cyclist and was published in their November/December 2010 issue. Garry has very generously donated his publishing fee to BIKESydney.  Thanks Garry – you rock!

White Bay Cruise Passenger Terminal EA misses mark

The plans for the proposed Cruise Passenger Terminal at White Bay fail to connect with public transport and fail to address the needs of pedestrians and cyclists. In December 2008 the NSW Government decided to permanently relocate the Darling Harbour No. 8 Cruise Passenger Terminal to facilitate and enhance the Barangaroo redevelopment project. In November 2009, its […]
