Lydia Ho - Partner & Instructor

Lydia is happiest when she’s riding her bike! She caught the biking bug after doing a solo tour of Tasmania in her 20s and has been riding ever since. She now regularly rides with her family around Sydney where they choose not to own a car. In 2011, she established the highly successful Bike 2 Bourke active transport campaign at her children’s school, Bourke St Public School. Cycling has now become normalised at this inner city school.

Lydia rides a Surly touring bike or a Bombtrack single-speed bike.
