Bike Leichhardt has been going for over 25 years!
Bike Leichhardt is a community group which is seeking better cycling facilities in Inner West Sydney and nearby areas. We also run regular Sunday bike rides and weekend or longer tours around NSW and beyond.
Bike Leichhardt, originally known as Leichhardt BUG, was founded in 1990 to encourage cycling and to lobby the former Leichhardt Council, now part of Inner West Council, and other authorities for better bike routes and safer roads for cyclists around the Inner West. Bike Leichhardt is one of about 40 BUGs around the state, most affiliated with Bicycle NSW. We are a member of the Inner West Bicycle Coalition along with Bike Marrickville and Bike Ashfield.
