The Sydney Rides Festival is a cyclists dream, with three weeks jam-packed full of cycling activities, bicycle courses, food and drink, and much more.

Back by popular demand, Sydney Beer Week is a nine-day festival (because who’s counting?) that features Australia’s favourite beverage – the humble beer.

You can expect to enjoy some delicious craft beer at the Opening Gala at Sydney’s Maritime Museum, while the Sydney Beer Awards and Hair of the Dog Breakfast are definitely not to be missed.

This fun and crazy experience will see you dressing up as your favourite character and heading out to a custom go-kart track with friends and other video-game aficionados.
