Hefty fines, disconnected cycleways and heavy traffic earned Sydney the reputation of being an anti-cyclist city. But following a boom in bike sales since coronavirus restrictions came into force, and fewer cars on the road inviting people to dust off their bikes and use them, that perception could be eroded.
The City of Sydney offers group cycling courses designed to have citizens riding safely in its streets. But after social distancing restrictions put the brakes on group lessons, the city offered one-on-one lessons in its place, showcasing its commitment to having more people riding as Covid-19 restrictions ease.
