One of the most interesting things about visiting Sydney is that unlike many other parts of the world, it’s an urban centre that still has appeal for people who love nature. There are many parks that you can visit to get in touch with nature, and this is one activity that many tourists to the region love doing. If you are visiting with your kids, choosing to cycle around some of the parks would be a good idea for you to bond, get some fresh air, exercise and have fun. This is an activity that you will find easy to do in the region, since there are many bike parks available. Some that are especially suited for kids include:
· Balmoral Beach
· Bicentennial Park, Glebe
· Blenheim Park
· Buffallo Creek Reserve
These bike tracks and many more are not physically demanding, which is why many parents prefer to have their kids riding their bicycles here.
You will need to get cycling equipment to go bike riding with your children. This is not difficult to do. You can rent everything from the bikes themselves to the protective gear such as helmets, so you don’t need to carry any of it from home. The specific things you should remember to rent or buy include:
· Knee and elbow pads: These are essential in protecting the kids against any bruises if they fall.
· Sunscreen: If you are going to spend a lot of time in the sun, remember to use some sunscreen. Carry a bit of it with you when going cycling, since you may need to reapply some of it. Australia in general tends to be hot, so this is necessary even if you are dark-skinned.
· Some water: You may find yourself having a lot of fun, but this may also lead to dehydration. Remember to carry some water with you.
· A camera: You will definitely come across excellent views of people and nature when cycling. Carry a camera just in case you need to record these moments.
The beauty about most of the cycling parks in Sydney is that they have a lot to offer, so you can have a lot of variety in the activities you decide to take part in that day. For instance, most have an integrated playground, which means that you can let your child have some fun playing with other kids and with items such as the swings in the park. You can also turn the whole affair into a sort of get together by having a barbecue in the park as well.
