The M4 Cycleway is surprisingly very well signposted, even with the detours the diversions signs were everywhere. The best part of this ride is the destination. Cabramatta, home of the best Vietnamese food.

Cycling in Western Sydney with Aquaducts, through Little Vietnam, a Dutch shop and loaded up on Turkish bread
I managed to combine my 2 loves over the weekend. Exploring the west on bike. Following the ethnic food trail. Start with a hipster coffee in the inner west, head to Granville for some Lebanese and Turkish goodness. Stop in Smithfield and visit the Dutch shop (hidden in the warehouse district, very, very random) then head to Cabramatta for some Vietnamese madness.
