Heffron Park: final Tuesday of the ‘Summer Series’
We talk to a few people associated with the Sydney cycling scene and take a glimpse at one of the local criteriums to catch the vibe and find out a little more about racing at Heffron Park.
On a day of immense sadness in the Sydney cycling community, it seemed appropriate to visit Heffron Park for the final of the famous Tuesday evening ‘Summer Series’, a criterium that allows riders to showcase their talent mid-week and give a little exposure for sponsors who are committed to the local scene.
More than anything though, it’s a reminder of what bike racing is all about. It’s engaging, fun, fast, and something some are lucky enough to be able to do with mates.

“Racing’s a lot better than training. Oh, 100% – easily.”
RIDE Media visited Heffron Park to witness the final race of the series. We took along a camera and did a few interviews.
