Sydney to Hunter - 5 Star Cycling Classic

Like many cyclists I don’t need a lot of encouragement to get out on my bike for a ride. Whether it’s the post-ride endorphins, the rush of a fast descent or sense of accomplishment cresting a climb, or just getting out with some mates, I consider climbing aboard my bike for a few hours is a joyous privilege. Riding is seen by some who don’t ride as a strange pastime, perhaps even a form of self inflicted torture.

New ranges of bikes are flooding into the market from many of the big brands, including Merida, Lapierre and Norco.
