Let’s plan ahead. 10,000 cyclists will be making their way to Sydney on Sunday 3rd November to start this awesome ride to Wollongong, so plan ahead to make this an easy and stress-free experience. We highly recommend taking public transport or staying close to the start line. Take a look at all your options below.
Staying somewhere close to the start site in Tempe or Engadine? Awesome you are well ahead of the pack! Remember it will be dark, so have your fluro gear, reflectors and lights ON to stay safe.
If you would like to stay close to the start location then check out our accommodation options.
If you have the option of getting public transport to the event, we highly recommend it. Your Opal Card will be required for all public transport to the start lines. The Special Event Train Tickets are not valid on public transport to the start lines.
The 2019 MS Gong Ride Special Events train services timetable can be found here. Please note OPAL cards will not be accepted on Sydney Transport Special Event trains.
82km Start – Wolli Creek station
58km Start – Engadine station
To help get your exhilarated-self home after your ride we’ve partnered with Sydney Trains to offer over 20 additional trains from Wollongong to Sydney.
You can buy Special Event Train Tickets as part of your registration or the MS Online Shop.
NB: There will be a limited amount available to purchase at the Finish Village Train Ticket Marquee on event day.
This ticket will also allow you to travel anywhere on the Sydney Trains Network on your return journey from Wollongong.
At both start locations we have a drop off zone for those who can manage a lift with the awesome person that will get up nice and early to help you out! Or organise a carpool with your team!
There is limited parking at both start and finish locations.
There is no official parking available at the start locations, we encourage everyone to use public transport where possible or the drop off zone. This is a residential area so on street parking is limited.
