Across the Sydney Harbour Bridge we go

Here we are during a Critical Mass ride cycling across the Sydney Harbour Bridge…. Once a year in November the northbound lanes of the Sydney Harbour Bridge are closed for about half an hour while the Critical Mass riders cycle through.Cycling over a car free Harbour Bridge has to be the best feeling in the world.

Here we are during a Critical Mass ride cycling across the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Notice the lack of cars. Once a year in November the northbound lanes of the Sydney Harbour Bridge are closed for about half an hour while the Critical Mass riders cycle through. Cycling over a car free Harbour Bridge has to be the best feeling in the world. My friend Wing can be seen just ahead in orange enjoying the experience.

This photo is from the Friday, November 26, 2004 Critical Mass ride in Sydney. The following Sunday the Cycle Sydney event also rode through a car free Harbour Bridge but this time it was southbound on the Cahil Expressway.

  1. Damn! I was in Athens when this was going on! The bridge ride is good fun though, really worth hearing the taxi drivers swearing at the cyclists as we were riding through in the 2003 ride.

    Damos says hi and he seems keen to get into blogging himself.

  2. Even more historical is the fact that it was one of the few days that Adrian could get his arse in gear and cycle to work!

  3. Hi Pete,

    This pic would be great for a story I’m putting up on The Wheeler website. Mind if I use it?

    Cheers
    Alice
