Riding TO Sydney is cool. Riding IN Sydney is ugly...or is it?

I will in early May be riding to Sydney to catch up with eldest brother as he flies through. I won't be pushing too hard - call it ~100Ks a day with overnight  stops in Goulburn and either Mossvale or Mittagong.

Thus far my planning for the third day is to get to the Sydney metro rail network and then train to Chatswood. Alternatively, I might pay large amounts for a taxi to just dodge the whole business of riding in Sydney traffic (which I'm constantly being warned is dire and horrible and ugly, etc).

Then it occurred to me that I had to be shown the bike path network in Perth the last time I was there (Hi rdmasters, hi leecetheartist, hi steveg!). When I lived in Perth I mostly drove and simply didn't notice bike routes, or think in those terms, and most of the people I know in Sydney would be the same way.

So, does anyone know if Sydney has a decent bike route from a south western approach through to Chatswood? Where can I find details?
