Starting in St Leonards Park and finishing up in either Pyrmont (12km ride) or Olympic Park (50km and 105km), enjoy post-ride entertainment as you relax and unwind in the presence of friends and family. Enter as a team, individually or take your kids free of charge. Early bird tickets are on sale now (end Aug 31).

Broadway Sydney's flash new second floor is open for business

If you’ve visited Broadway Sydney any time within the last year, you would’ve noticed that Level 2 has been undergoing a serious makeover. And now, after 12 months of redevelopment works and an expansion of 3,400 square metres, it’s finally been unveiled! The doors swung open on August 18 and the $55 million redevelopment is now showing off 30 new retailers in food, fashion and beauty. International brands you can now find at Broadway include H&M, Sephora, Victoria’s Secret, Seed Heritage, Sunglass Hut, Calvin Klein Underwear, Napoleon Perdis and many more. If all that shopping has given you an appetite, you can sate it at Passiontree Velvet teahouse; Din Tai Fung; Zeus Street Greek; Chinese food experts Mr Wu; Turkish food kings Eat Istanbul; and Vietnamese street food vendors Bun Me, alongside familiar favourites like Soul Origin, Nando’s, Grill’d Healthy Burgers, Schnitz, Guzman Y Gomez, Hero Sushi and Cha Time. The newly renovated Level 2 is also pretty to look at – it's adorned in contemporary Australian art from Four Sydney-based creatives – illustrator and silkscreen printer Kate Banazi, emerging furniture designer Vincent Buret, textiles artist Victoria Garcia, and industrial designer Adam Goodrum.
