There are more than 50kms of informal and formal bicycle paths/routes throughout the City of Banyule that connect with major parks, reserves, schools and shopping precincts. Whether you are riding for sport, recreation or just 'to get around', cycling is a fast and efficient mode of transport. Cycling will save you money, help the environment and improve your fitness. It is also much less stressful than sitting in a car!
In recent years, Banyule has improved its bicycle network, predominantly catering for recreational users. Recent shared trails have been completed through Rosanna Parklands and the Banyule Trail extends from the intersection of Lower Plenty Road and Greensborough Highway to Banksia Street, Heidelberg. The challenge now is to develop a combination of appropriate off-road and on-road networks to ensure cycling becomes a realistic travel choice for all residents and visitors to Banyule.
In addition, there are many excellent formal and informal walking routes available throughout the municipality: - on footpaths, on shared trails through our parks and reserves, by the creeks and rivers.
Details of the various cycling and walking tracks can be found in the Banyule TravelSMART Map which is available to download from the TravelSMART page or paper copies are available at Council’s Customer Service Centres or can be posted direct to you.
