Best way to get onto/over the harbour bridge from Mosman

By Geoff - Posted on 26 September 2009

Hi all,
I'll be participating in the National Ride to work day on OCtober 14th (2009) and I will be riding from Freshwater to Darlinghurst...I've started training already and am doing Manly dam more frequently which is great.

I was just wondering if anyone could offer advice on getting down and up onto the harbour bridge from Mosman/Neutral Bay - i.e which is the best way/most efficient?

Thanks in advance,

Geoff.

There's a designated route published with back roads from Mosman all the way to the bridge. I used to ride it myself when I lived on the North Shore but alas I'm now Inner West.

Take a look here http://www.northsydney.nsw.gov.au/www/html/2677-... for more detailed guidance / maps.

Hey Geoff
There's quite a few different ways of doing this. I ride Manly Vale to City everyday, you're more then welcome to join me and I'll show the different routes you can take. PM me if you're keen.

From Neutral Bay (let's say the Big Bear) I'd just blast straight down Bent Street, along Alfred St, left down High St, then right at the lights (Clark Road/Broughton St) and short climb up to the Bridge.

These are hardly back streets but in the morning you should be going faster than the traffic on these roads anyhow - either because of the descent down Bent St or the congestion elsewhere Eye-wink

That overpass East end of Ridge St might look promising but it's actually quiet a pain riding through North Sydney and down to the bridge from there (don't you have to go via Lavender St?).

My 2c: From Military Rd, turn left onto Ben Boyd Rd at The Oaks, follow down to Kurraba Rd (nice and fast unless you get stuck behind a car), turn right and follow road around Anderson Park down on the water, up the other side (Broughton Rd?) and under the bridge directly to the foot of the bike ramp /stairs.
Good luck with the commute. I started commuting a month or so ago - can't understand why I haven't been doing it for years...
