Ryde is a hilly suburb in Sydney's North West. The suburb is carved into quarters by a couple busy motorways that come through here – the A3 and the A40 – but it's predominantly residential with the exception of the Top Ryde City Shopping Centre. This shopping and dining hub has hundreds of stores, several supermarkets, cinemas, a gym, medical services, and a range of restaurants.

Single-family homes of various sizes make up most of the housing here. Part of the suburb does stretch down to the Parramatta River and here you'll find large, recently built 4-5 story apartment buildings.

A number of excellent schools make this a popular spot for families.

Residents working in the CBD have to contend with daily traffic jams but getting to the business areas of Parramatta or North Sydney isn't too bad. Public transportation is limited to buses, though there are train stations in adjacent suburbs.

Ryde is bordered on the north by Marsfield and North Ryde, on the east by East Ryde and Gladesville, on the south by Putney and the Parramatta River, and on the west by West Ryde, Dennistone, and Dennistone East.
