The back-street guide story

The author of Bike-it! Sydney, Bruce Ashley, first developed the idea of a back-street cycling guide, after a year spent working and living in inner London in the late 1980s. A first edition of Bike-it! was published by Chain Gang Press in 2001. Over 3500 copies were sold in bookshops, bike shops and a festivals and stalls over a 4 year period.

For the Bike-it! 2nd edition the book was totally rebuilt and the mapping base greatly expanded, in full colour and with many more features and launched December 2005. Over 6,000 copies have since been sold into bookshops, bike shops, cycling organisations and at events. The publication has been out of print since about late 2008, so Chain Gang Press is now offering the publication as a downloadable PDF. That means you can zoom right in on the maps!

Do You have any Bike-it! updates?

A 3rd edition of Bike-it! Sydney is now being developed, and because it's 8 years since the last edition, there will need to be some updates and changes. Do you have any changes, additions or comments to add to the info that was in the 2nd edition 2005? Please email if you do, and include a map or online mapping tool reference (e.g. Google Maps, Bikely, Map my Ride)
