Centennial Park Bike Speed NSW

Speed trap on bike track at Centennial Park Sydney NSW


Cyclists on a popular Sydney bike trail are being targeted by speed laser guns in an effort to encourage them to keep at reasonable speeds.

I headed over to Sydney recently to review a few more bike trails. Spent a few days riding around Circular Quay to The Domain, Centennial Park and Olympic Park. And it was at the large circular track at Centennial Park where I saw laser speed guns being used on motorists and cyclists.

However to everyone’s relief the laser guns were not being manned by police. Instead they were attached to those large electronic roadwork signs telling oncoming motorists and cylists what speed they were doing. The speed limit for both road users is 30kph. So if a cyclist is riding over 30kph the sign would flash a large SLOW DOWN message. But you were thanked if you kept at or below the speed limit.

Test your speed on the bike track at Centennial Park, Sydney


On a bike you really get to see how fast you are going. 30kph may seem really slow in a car but on a bike its a good fast ride. However in that wide bike track at Centennial Park I saw some of those cyclists speeding over the limit. Boy, some of those guys can push their bikes hard and fast. I just managed to make it to 30kph on my hire bike. But mind you I did get up at 4:30am that morning to catch the red eye flight from Adelaide to Sydney.

You’ll get to see lots more pics of the Centennial Park bike track and the other two bike tracks I reviewed. Look out for the new reviews coming soon under Sydney in the Reviews section.
