You’re invited to help mark the 50th anniversary of the moon landing by taking part in an epic city-wide endeavour. From 9-27 January, Sydney Festival is inviting the whole city to jump on bikes and, together, pedal the 384,400 kilometres it takes to reach the moon.

UPDATE: We reached our goal early and got to the moon already on 22 January. Now we've set a new goal to cycle back to planet Earth! We're collectively cycling the 384,400 kilometres back from the moon! We've added a few more days to the challenge, so you have time to join and help us reach the new total of 768,800 km! 

How it works

You can join this slightly loony lunar expedition by visiting the art installation Fly Me To The Moon at World Square where you can pedal on stationary bikes and see the city’s progress. Or you can remotely donate the kilometres from your own cycling right here. Whether you cycle every day, take part in organised rides or attend gym classes, every kilometre counts.

Sign up now, and we'll let you know when you can start adding your kms to our space race.

Everyone who registers and participates will go in the draw to win great prizes and access to special offers (further announcements coming soon).
