Ride2School Day celebrations in the city

Darlinghurst Public School students, parents and teachers join thousands across the country cycling and scooting.

  • Mia, Jasmine and Ruby

    “We love riding together and racing each other at the park.”

  • William

    “I like to go off-road on my mountain bike. When I’m older, I’d want to ride to high school and to work.”

  • Spencer

    “I like going really fast! More people should be riding in Sydney because driving is lazy.”

  • Joakim

    “You get to hear everything when you’re riding: the birds, the wind and conversations. I love riding with my friends and want to be able to ride more when I’m older to help the environment.”

  • Lola

    “I feel happy when I’m riding. All you need to do is pedal and I love feeling the wind in my hair.”

  • Perla and Luce

    “It’s good to have more bikes on the road. It will mean less pollution and a healthier city for everyone.”

  • Louis

    “More people in Sydney should give riding a go. It’s fun, keeps you fit and the coolest way to travel.”

More than 2,000 schools and 350,000 students took part in the national event, which promotes active travel to school.
