Has anyone taken their tails for a trot to see the renovated townhouses in Kensington Street yet? We love it!
They’ve been given a yummy lick of paint and we dig the new residents. Fancy a coffee while you wait for your flowers to be arranged? No sweat! Have a rumbling tummy? Not for long you won’t! Take a sneaky turn down an alley and you will be transported out of Sydney to what feels like a Hawkers Corner in little Asia.
If you weren’t curious you’d miss it. Such a lovely little nook offering sensational and cheap fare. We love the details, the street art with a splash of colour being injected from the yellow and red lanterns swaying in the breeze above. Once you look up, you witness the wonderful juxtaposition of the modern architecture in Central Park and the terraces on Kensington Street. Nicely done, people, nicely done.
Bellies need not despair. Between the two of us we blew a cool thirty and waddled out with swelling bellies and thoughts of wanderlust wanting to go to Spain for a siesta. Chippendale Precinct, you da best!
Give the 4 wheeler a swift bumsteer and opt for the 2-wheeled kind. Not only are you hugging the planet, you’re giving your heart one too.
The Sydney Rides Festival commences this Saturday and we think it’s a wheelie great way to kick start your tyred heart and get into a new routine.
There are 21 days of fantastic activities beginning at Sydney Park. For the early bird yoga bunnies there are morning sessions or opt to embrace your inner BMX bandit Nicole Kidman stylee in the BMX arena. There’s a super-cross track, mountain boarding, an edible garden, parkour workshops, rock climbing wall, the Taronga zoo-mobile and food stalls.
Throughout the rest of the festival there are Sydney suit rides, National Ride2work day, pop up bars, movie nights, and more. And there’s a party on the final night in the heart of the city too. It’s gearing up to be a goodie!
On a side note, let’s face it, Sydney’s CBD is about to be on the feral side. With the closures on George Street looming, we think this is going to be a more desirable way to get your tails to work quicker, cleaner and healthier. It’s a win, win all round.
So rimember to borrow a bike or dust yours off, spokey dokey it up, bling it with a bell, tie on some streamers and get involved! Toot toot!
Dad jokes aside it’s gearing up to be a forking spoketacular event. [okay I’ll stop now as you can’t handle it!!!].
